In the exhibition, Provocations: The Architecture and Design of Heatherwick Studio at Cooper Hewitt in June, 2015, along with a vast array of Heatherwick’s unique design concepts and projects, New Yorkers got a sneak-peek of Heatherwick’s Hudson River project Pier55. At the time, the project seemed not only far-off in our future, but fraught with problems from financial to environmental.
The project, Pier55, has broken ~ water ~ with an anticipated opening date! We were at that Cooper Hewitt exhibition in 2015, and reviewed our photographs of the images that will be brought to life within this next two years. Below are a few photos from this exhibition ~ architectural models and large-scale renderings for Pier55, a public park and performance space currently being constructed and jetting out 186 feet from the edge of Manhattan into the Hudson River.
