Behind the Design: 55 Hudson Yards

Situated at 34th Street and 11th Avenue, 55 Hudson Yards pays homage to Manhattan. In this short film, the KPF team behind the project – Trent Tesch, Lauren Schmidt, Lane Rapson, and Jaclyn Jung – discuss how designing a project on a vast, empty site, without existing context, led to a process of stepping back and considering what it means to design a ‘New York building.’
