See the reimagined Hudson Yards area in New York. We will have tickets for you to check out The Vessel, this modern architectural design, and you will also have time to shop and find a place to eat during our stop here!
Created by Thomas Heatherwick and Heatherwick Studio, Vessel presents a uniquely interactive experience – a monument meant to be climbed and explored. Comprised of 154 intricately interconnected flights of stairs – almost 2,500 individual steps and 80 landings – the centerpiece will literally lift up the public, offering a multitude of ways to engage with New York and each other.
Machine Hallucination, Anadol’s first large-scale installation in New York City is a mixed reality experiment deploying machine learning algorithms on a dataset of over 300 million images—representing a wide-ranging selection of architectural styles and movements—to reveal the hidden connections between these moments in architectural history. As the machine generates a data universe of architectural hallucinations in 1025 dimensions, we can begin to intuitively understand the ways that memory can be spatially experienced and the power of machine intelligence to both simultaneously access and augment our human senses. By embedding photography with machine intelligence a new latent cinematic experience is born, one that narrates the fluid consciousness of a city and displays cultural information in a way that allows us to realize the complex fabric that unfolds our present realities.
