The Shed will be a new center for artistic invention in New York. Scheduled to open in spring 2019, The Shed will commission and present new work by artists across many disciplines, including music, art, dance and performance art. The Shed will be adjacent to 15 Hudson Yards and border the Public Square and Gardens.
The Shed’s most notable design feature is a telescoping outer shell that deploys over the plaza adjoining the building to provide a 120-foot-high, temperature-controlled hall. As the building expands and contracts, it can work in many configurations, welcoming multiple events simultaneously. When the shell is nested over the fixed building, the 17,000-square-foot plaza will be open public space that can be used for outside programming.
15 Hudson Yards is directly on the High Line and adjacent to The Shed. The new independent institution will be housed in an innovative 200,000-square-foot building designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Rockwell Group.
