Since Spring, work on the Hudson Yards has been picking up steam, while its first completed tower—10 Hudson Yards—has already altered New York's skyline. New renderings, however, reveal that 15 Hudson Yards, the building that will sit behind it, may be the coolest one of the whole project.
Designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro/Rockwell Group, 15 Hudson Yards is distinguished by four curvaceous corners rising seamlessly out of a rectangular base, an effect achieved by large vertical creases that bisect each of the building’s four sides about halfway up the 910-foot-high structure.
The result, which is both futuristic and sexy, is echoed by The Shed, the retractable culture center adjoining the ground floor. When open in 2018, 15 Hudson Yards will be one of the largest buildings in New York.
