[VIDEO] Hudson Yards Mega Sculpture Unveiled As 16-Story Interconnected Labyrinth of Staircases

Related Companies, the development firm behind the Hudson Yards mega-construction project in Hell’s Kitchen, recently revealed a 16-story interactive sculpture titled “Vessel” featuring a labyrinth of interconnected staircases.

More than three years after he boasted that the centerpiece of Hudson Yards’ public plaza would be New York’s Eiffel Tower, Related Companies chairman Stephen Ross has unveiled the design for a 16-story web of interconnected staircases that will rise among the mega-projects glass-and-steel towers. The structure, titled “Vessel” and designed by Thomas Heatherwick, comes with a price tag of $150 million and will be in place at the Far West Side campus’ public square in two years.

I don’t know about “New York’s Eiffel Tower”, but the interactive sculpture does look pretty interesting. What do you think?
