diller scofidio + renfro: culture shed


culture shed by diller scofidio + renfro and the rockwell group

new york firm diller scofidio + renfro has been given a 100 000 USD grant by the national
endowment for the arts in the US for advanced work on their project the ‘culture shed’,
as part of the redevelopment of railyards on the westside of manhattan.

bordering the high line, which the firm also developed, the building has been conceived together
with the rockwell group for the hudson yards development. the multi use building will be
a combination of museum, performance space and exhibition site. the five-story building will
cover a footprint of 22,000 square feet with two deployable outer sheds that fit over the base
and can be rolled from their nested positions on tracks on the east and west sides of the base
building resulting in an exhibition hall of more than 55,000 square feet.

the hudson yards development corporation (HYDC) is a not-for-profit entity created by
the city of new york in 2005 to oversee the redevelopment of the hudson yards district,
a 360 acre mixed-use site bordered by 42nd and 28th streets and 8th avenue and the hudson river.
