An intricate, winding honeycomb structure called Vessel will be the new centerpiece of the Hudson Yards development, situated on Manhattan’s West Side. Aiming to create art that “…everybody could use, touch, [and] relate to,” designer Thomas Heatherwick connected a network of stairs and landings to create an interactive public gathering space. The finished structure will be vase-shaped and 150 feet across at its widest point. The finished landmark will include a landscaped area with gardens, groves of trees, and a river fountain.
