How is the integrity of quality public space prioritized in designing and constructing New York’s largest private development that also happens to be on structure? Rooted in ecological and cultural research, collaboration-based, and supported by engineering ingenuity, this conversation will reveal the technical process behind the public landscape of Hudson Yards.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand complexities associated with designing and constructing on six acres of on-structure plinth.
  • See how landscape architects play a key role in team coordination for highly technical projects.
  • Explore how to effectively integrate digital communicative tools throughout a traditional design process.
  • Learn how beautiful, viable, and resilient ecological systems translate to such a highly engineered environment.
