SHoP architects’ proposal transforms this historical New York hub into a bright, airy space in response to MAS’s 2013 design challenge for a new penn station and the next madison square garden. The design relocates the arena to Hudson Yards, engaging the waterfront, and extending the midtown locus across Manhattan. Further integrating it into the city context, an extension of the high line connects to the gotham gateway armature. Parks and amenities linking the former neighbors, provide a civic face to the project and generate revenues to relieve the financial burden. the displacement of madison square garden allows major conceptual renovations to re-contextualize transportation in the heart of New York. The design encloses the rail station with a dematerialized train shed, allowing ample light and air into the space. Circulation would be re-organized for ease of access and intuitive navigation throughout the largest transportation center in the united states.
