Vessel opens at Hudson Yards


Vessel’ at Hudson Yards has finally opened! Part of the huge redevelopment in New York, Vessel is the centrepiece of this huge new public space.

Designed by Thomas Heatherwick of Heatherwick Studio, the interactive sculpture was constructed and designed with the public in mind, as this particular part of the development was funded by Michael Bloomberg, former mayor of New York. Vessel was his ‘gift’ to the public.

With 154 flights of stairs, 80 landings and almost 2,500 steps, this mile-high climb is open now to the public in Hudson Yards.
