New images and details of "The Shed" have been presented at Hudson Yards, just as the first ETFE elements begin to be installed in the enclosure structure, as a preliminary phase to its completion scheduled for the spring of 2019.
The Shed, New York’s new center for artistic invention, is a building that will accommodate the broadest range of performance, visual art, and multi-disciplinary work. Two principal components comprise The Shed: an eight-level “fixed” base building for cultural programming and support spaces, and a telescoping outer shell that deploys over an adjoining plaza to double the building’s footprint on demand. The base building includes two expansive levels of gallery space, a versatile theater, a rehearsal space, a creative lab for artists, and a sky-lit event space. The shell forms a vast hall that accommodates large-scale performances, installations, and events.
