    Hudson Yards Reveals Plans in Lectures, Exhibit

    The lecture series will explain key aspects of the project, including the observation deck.

    Last winter, Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group broke ground on New York’s Hudson Yards project. Now, in tandem with the city's Design Week, the New York Center for Architecture hosts “Design (in) The New Heart of New York”, an exhibit unveiling new architectural and design aspects of the development. Perhaps the most exciting facet of the exhibition is the eight-week-long lecture series, including a talk on Thursday, May 16 by William Pedersen, founding design partner of Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, and 
journalist and critic Joseph Giovannini.

    “We wanted to give New Yorkers and visitors alike a chance to experience and learn about this unprecedented project in a very hands-on way,” says AIANY 2013 President Jill N. Lerner, FAIA, of the program. “Through the Speaker Series, the public will have the first direct access to and dialogue with the architects and builders behind Hudson Yards.”

    The Hudson Yards development, as rendered here, is slated to be completed in 2015.

    Other upcoming events include conversations with Liz Diller of Diller Scofidio + Renfro; Howard Elkus, FAIA, RIBA, of Elkus Manfredi Architects; David Rockwell, AIA, of Rockwell Group; and Thomas Woltz, FASLA, of Nelson Byrd Woltz; among others. The next event on Thursday, May 30 will be a discussion about mixed-use buildings in a mixed-use site with David Childs, FAIA, Consulting Design Partner at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.

    The first 5,000 visitors to the exhibit and lecture series will pocket a postcard set by paper engineer Keisuke Saka, a part of the “Make City” series of paper crafts which include the cities of New York, London and Tokyo. To RSVP for events, visit www.aiany.org.

    The exhibit will enable visitors to see, for the first time, scale models of the forthcoming Hudson Yards development.
