The designs for the new Culture Shed, by the Rockwell Group– and Diller Scofidio + Renfro– look truly AMAZING. It’s part of Hudson Yards and it runs alongside the High Line park and renderings here show a connecting staircase between the two, so visitors will be able to walk between the public spaces.
The shed will be a flexible space, available for fashion, film, design, food, live performances, art installations, trade shows, and a myriad of cultural happenings. The renderings show how the shed will “nestle” into a DS+R-designed residential building, plus how it will look opened up versus “closed”.
It’s expected to be complete and operational sometime in 2019 but there were delays, so who knows. To get a better sense of the adaptability of the space, plus the unique features and location, watch the “fly-through” video below.
