West Podium Art Wall opens

New York, United States

James Carpenter Design Associates

As part of Related Companies’ Hudson Yards development, James Carpenter Design Associates has designed a rippled facade that multiplies the presence of the sky and plaza intersected by the arcing passage of the sun.


New York, United States, 2019-03-14 -

Opening to the public on March 15, the Hudson Yards is a new 26-acre neighborhood on the west side of Manhattan built over a working rail yard. The mixed-use complex is organized around a public square adjacent to the Hudson River to the west. James Carpenter Design Associates was commissioned by Related Urban to design the west-facing podium art wall for 20 Hudson Yards, a large retail complex between two towers designed by KPF. The art wall becomes the facade to the Hudson Yard Shops and establishes the dynamic threshold for a public square where the Hudson River Park, the High Line and the Hudson Park and Boulevard intersect with the Culture Shed and Thomas Heatherwick’s stepped vessel sculpture.

 

The 300’ long cable-net supports glass panels inclined to capture the sky and curved along their top edge to capture the plaza landscape and activity below. The horizontal rhythm of the wall simultaneously captures and compresses the activities of the sky and landscaped plaza, reflecting a linear repetition of sky and plaza that echoes the rippled surface reflections of the Hudson River. At times, the 90’ high wall appears to lean back to absorb the western sky, while in the afternoon, the repeated image of the sun reflected in the wall’s curves, describes an arc reminiscent of the afternoon sun setting over the river.
