The Shed

The Shed is an exciting new home for the visual, performing and multimedia arts on the West Side of Manhattan on the south end of the Hudson Yards district.  The concept for The Shed emerged from a need for space to host large projects for larger audiences than most of New York’s cultural real estate can handle. Temporary and touring shows, food and art fairs, fashion shows and concerts will be held inside and outside the core building, which features a 140-foot retractable canopy that enables the adjacent plaza to become a full-fledged event space. FDA’s team is collaborating with DS+R, Rockwell Group and the client group to plan the performance galleries in the base building and the shed space, along with the complex technical infrastructure that will allow these spaces to be used flexibly and experimentally. FDA’s work includes design for the front and back of house spaces to make them usable for special events, concerts, theatre, dance, film and other presentations.
