Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Rockwell Group show how the New York arts centre will look 

Diller Scofidio + Renfro, who are collaborating with Rockwell Group on New York's ‘Culture Shed', have unveiled the design for this new 170,000 sq ft non-profit cultural centre project in the Hudson Yards area of Manhattan.

The centre is designed to help anchor Manhattan's far West Side by providing large-scale, flexible space for a dynamic range of creative industry activities, including visual art, design, dance, theatre, music and media.

The facility will comprise a five-storey fixed building with large, column-free floors for exhibitions and performances and a shell that deploys to double the interior space.

As Culture Shed expands and contracts, it will work in many configurations, welcoming multiple events simultaneously, and serving diverse artists and audiences from across New York City and beyond.

The project is currently going through the public review process, which is due to be completed by the end of September, with city officials hoping the project will be open by the end of 2017.
