The Shed Arts Center Manhattan

Construction of Sliding New York City Building, NY, USA – design by Diller Scofidio + Renfro Architects (DSR)

May 25 + 24, 2017
The Shed Arts Center in New York City

This unorthodox project inspired by Cedric Price’s Fun Palace had its Press day on May 24th. The design came out of sketch that architect Elizabeth Diller and client David Rockwell first made in 2008 while drinking Bellinis in at La Biennale di Venezia.

The project, with a planned opening in 2019, has just received a $75 million gift from former Mayor Michael Bloomberg toward a $500 million capital campaign, of which $435 million is construction costs. The donation brings the total raised so far to $421 million.

Design: Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Architects

Location: adjacent to 15 Hudson Yards, NY, USA

Construction Start for The Shed Arts Center in Manhattan

Construction begins on an intriguing new building for the Rockwell Group.

The Shed is a 18,500 sqm venue. It has six storeys and can “accommodate the broadest range of performance, visual art, music, and multi-disciplinary work”.

A cultural centre will be encased in a 34m-high outer shell that can slide on rails to double the ground space. The building includes two large-scale column-free galleries comprising 2,320 square metres of museum-quality space, a 500-seat theater and event and rehearsal spaces. Completion is due in 2019.

Project Description

Sited along the High Line at 30th street, The Shed is New York’s new home for artistic invention. The Shed is a 200,000-square-foot facility designed to physically and operationally accommodate the broadest range of performance, visual art, and multi-disciplinary work.

The structure comprises two principal components: a six-level fixed building, and a telescoping outer shell that deploys over the adjoining plaza to provide a 120-foot-high, light-, sound- and temperature-controlled hall that can serve an infinite variety of needs and uses, including a theater seating 1,250. The fixed building includes two large scale column-free galleries comprising 25,000 square feet of museum-quality space; a 500-seat theater; event and rehearsal space; and a free lab for the creation of new work for early career artists in New York City.

The building is able to expand and contract by rolling the telescoping shell on rails. Through the use of conventional building systems for the fixed structure and adapting gantry crane technology to activate the outer shell, the institution is able accommodate large-scale indoor and open-air programming on demand

When nested, the Shed provides a 20,000-square-foot public plaza. The Shed is adjacent to 15 Hudson Yards, a residential tower also designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Rockwell Group, which contains the building’s back-of-house needs and enables the entirety of The Shed to be devoted to programming.
