Vessel is the centrepiece of the Heatherwick Studio's development in Hudson Yards on the west side of Manhattan. Constructed over a rail yard, the design is influenced by the Indian stepwells of Rajasthan, composed of 2,500 steps, 154 flights, 80 landings over 16 stories, and is intended to be a climbable landmark.

Vessel was fabricated in Venice by a specialist steel fabricator; its framework of raw welded and painted steel has a polished copper-coloured underside to reflect the surrounding city.

Expected completion: March 2019
