Story of New York's Staircase Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

This guide to New York City's exciting new public space explores Vessel from top to bottom, inside and out, and from beginning to completion.

A public space like no other, Vessel was designed by the renowned Heatherwick Studio to give New Yorkers and visitors a unique vertical experience.

In this book, readers can witness every part of its development, from initial designs to the finished structure.

They'll learn why and how Vessel came to be and the significance of its placement in the Nelson Byrd Woltz-designed Public Square and Gardens at Hudson Yards.

An essay by architecture critic Paul Goldberger explores the importance of public spaces, while additional texts explain the evolution of the neighborhood, discuss Vessel's dramatic design, and capture the responses of locals and tourists.

A wealth of photography follows the structure's incredible path to completion and the final result, with a total of 2,500 steps, 154 interconnected staircases, 80 viewing landings, and one mile of pathways reaching 150 feet into the air.

Documenting one of the most complex pieces of architectural steelwork ever built at this scale, this book offers a fascinating, detailed, and unforgettable look at Vessel.
