Unused industrial sites are often the best places to imagine and realize our visions of the future. Vacant and broken, their bare landscapes are the templates on which we can build again.
The Hudson Yards Redevelopment Project seems to be New York City’s example of a formerly fallow site being renewed for future visions.
With sights set squarely on the future potential of the area, architects and planners will build 15 Hudson Yards, the first futuristic addition to the project.
The one million square foot, thousand foot tall building is a marvel of future architecture.
Take some time to ogle at the project’s glassy, space-like design, but the construction is only part of the project’s future potential.
Dubbed the “Culture Tower,” 15 Hudson Yards will be connected to the Highline elevated park and the yet-to-be-built “Culture Shed.”
The Culture Shed is a project led by the Rockwell Group that will be a home for future creative industries. The site will serve as an incubator and showroom for creative pursuits.
What do you imagine will happen to our future culture with projects like 15 Hudson Yards and the Culture Shed?
