I love how close to the renders those reflective panels look. I wasn't convinced the final product would match!

Wow, those panels look fantastic! I know it's a bit early to discuss this since Vessel hasn't even been completed yet, but my question is, will they let the panels turn green over time, or will they make sure that the panels stay reflective and a golden brown color? And if so, how will they prevent the panels from changing color (as would happen naturally due to oxidation?)

Its not copper, it's copper colored steel according to someone here so it shouldn't turn green (I hope not anyway)!

Hudson Yards's $200M 'Vessel' is on the rise

Quote:
The centerpiece of the public square at Hudson Yards is beginning to take shape, and what will eventually be a mile’s worth of climbable stairs is now a few stories above ground (a representative for Related informed us that the structure is at level six).
Designed by Thomas Heatherwick, who won a bid to create the sculpture in 2013, this “public landmark,” will consist of 154 interconnected staircases and be located at the center of a five-acre public park designed by Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects.
Related Companies, which is co-developing the Hudson Yards megaproject with the Oxford Properties Group, hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for the structure in April, and this sculpture has already come a long way since.
Heatherwick previously stated that the sculpture was inspired by his days at art school in London, and from the design of Indian step wells. Mayor Bill de Blasio has previously described it as a “must-see and a must-walk for all New Yorkers." Vessel will top out by the end of this year, and will be complete in early 2019.




This is how it looks like when it is completed.

One of the few designs that looks better in real life than the render.

That just does not capture the dazzling reflection of the metal.

Visual tricks


On the above pic:
Put the honeycomb at the top of your screen, and scroll up so that the image moves down. It is a fun visual optic.

Even if it's not on opening day, I hope there will be some kind of "run every step" event in the vein of the SkyRise Chicago charity run to the top of Willis Tower. With 2500 climbable steps, running the whole Vessel circuit will be even more than the 2109 steps to the top of Willis.

Vessel and The Culture Shed have to be the most unique duo of structures ever built this close together to each other.
