The futuristic-looking design for the Culture Shed bears the perfect name. Appearing as a large, airplane-hangar-like hut, it will house variety of performance, visual, and creative arts space in the Hudson Yards development. Helmed by Alex Poots, formerly of the Manchester International Festival and Park Avenue Armory, this new cultural hub—opening in 2019—will present works from around the world across all platforms, including film, fashion, video, culinary arts, music, publishing and performing arts. The space will also have galleries, workspaces and a rooftop cafe along with a retractable shell that opens over a plaza to create an immense performance space.
