Architecture DESIGN NEWS

The Thomas Heatherwick-designed Hudson Yards has officially been closed indefinitely – Following a third suicide.

The Thomas Heatherwick-designed 15-story Vessel structure has officially been closed indefinitely. Following the third suicide in less than a year, where another individual has taken their life after jumping off the 150-foot art project located in Hudson Yards, suicide-prevention experts and psychiatrists are being brought into the equation in discussing what to do with the Vessel.

There is currently no official statement as to what will happen to the Vessel or if any suicide-prevention measures will be added to the structure as it is considered a piece of art.
