The Shed

Designed by the Rockwell Group and Diller Scofidio and Renfro, The Shed is a 200,000-square-foot structure for performance, visual and multi-disciplinary art. The project is composed of a six-story fixed building and a telescoping outer shell that can expand to the adjoining plaza to provide an additional hall for events. Panels of fritted ETFE cushions clad the steel structure of the telescoping outer shell. ETFE is lighter, more energy efficient, and more economical than glass, which allows for a lighter and more efficient structural system.

The Vessel

Thomas Heatherwick's Vessel is officially opening at the Hudson Yards' Public Square and Gardens. The $200 million dollar sculpture stands 150 feet tall and is constructed of 154 Italian-made stair modules, totaling 2,500 steps and 80 landings. Each stair module is constructed of a structural painted steel frame with an underside clad in polished copper-colored steel. The sculpture will serve as the centerpiece of the five acre Public Square and Gardens, designed by Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects.

55 Hudson Yards

Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox with Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo and Associates, 55 Hudson Yards is a 51-story, 780-foot tower at the corner of 11th Avenue and West 34th Street. The tower's massing features a tenth floor setback that affords an outdoor terrace with views of the larger development as well as Hudson Park and the High Line. On the exterior, the curtain wall features black metal mullion caps that create a grid of chamfered rectangles.
