The Shed, a dynamic arts and culture venue located where the High Line meets Hudson Yards (Diller Scofidio + Renfro)
The built landscape on the far west side of Manhattan continues to transform. In early summer, we saw 15 Hudson Yards begin its sky-scraping ascent to supertall status, and The Shed (previously known as The Culture Shed) began to take shape. Both projects are now above ground and have a way to go until they're complete, but next phases are already in place. Sales launched in September for condos at 15 Hudson Yards, and The Shed has already announced programming, well ahead of the 2019 opening of the innovative arts and culture venue.
Designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Rockwell Group, The Shed is the anticipated arts and culture venue for all mediums imaginable - including performance, visual, art, music, and multidisciplinary work. To take on such a feat, the team has created a dynamic 200,000-square-foot, six-level structure that will have a retractable exterior that opens to an adjoining 21,000-square-foot plaza.

Located where the High Line meets Hudson Yards, the versatile venue's retractable hall will provide a 120-foot-high space where temperature, light, and sound can be controlled for installations and events. It will also have two museum-quality gallery spaces comprising 25,000 square feet, and a theater that can seat up to 1,250. There will be a smaller 500-seat theater, along with event and rehearsal space. The retractable structure, which the designers call a telescoping outer shell, features an exposed steel diagrid frame that is 2,400 tons and uses 6-foot-tall wheels to open and close.
The Shed (Diller Scofidio + Renfro)
Joann Gonchar of Architectural Record recently gave an in-depth analysis of The Shed’s technical components in her article “Kinetic Buildings.” She says the retractable frame will be made of a light-weight material which can integrate the equipment necessary for a power supply, lighting, and theatrical rigging. The design team has also planned for temperature regulation and environmental control, and will utilize radiant floor heating, low-level ducts, and blackout shades.
More than $326 million has been raised to assist with the total construction cost of $425 million, and before the building has even opened, programming is underway for a variety of works. It announced its first commission this fall, a three-year citywide dance activism program called FlexNYC which will establish partnerships between NYC students and emerging career artists to explore social justice through dance, and this summer the NY Times reported The Shed's first art commission; Bronx-born artist Lawrence Weiner who is producing new work that will be displayed when the building opens.
Current construction at the site shows both The Shed and 15 Hudson Yards rising.
Just north of The Shed is 15 Hudson Yards which is steadily rising to 88 stories. It will be the first residential building to open in the Hudson Yards mega-development, and sales have already launched for the condos within the curvaceous glass tower. Available in one- to four-bedrooms, the residences will be impeccably appointed with marble, stone, and oak, and will of course host top-notch appliances and fixtures. The building has a quatre leaf shape to optimize the expansive views from the tower, which will also include sustainable elements to secure a LEED Gold certification. Prices for the apartments range between $2 million and $30 million, and more information about the building can be found on our building profile for 15 Hudson Yards.
