NYTC New York theater city Competition for Students

Deadline: 31 May

ArchMedium wants to propose the design of the “New York Theatre City”. It is an urban theatre campus where smaller companies can dispose of rehearsal spaces, and the new spectacles can show themselves to the world offering an always young, new and different cultural activity.

The plot chosen for the development of the project is an industrial area that has a privileged location within Manhattan, and is waiting for a new project to help it reinvent itself in the city, as neighbour locations have made.

It’s setting is to the west of the island and between the 30th and 34th streets, and 11th and 12th avenues. The plot is located in an area of renovation. Surrounding the area, new high standing residential buildings were made; a few meters to the north, the Jacob Javits Convention Center has been attracting people to the area for years, now; on its west side, the renovation of the sea walk in front of the Hudson river and its docks is practically finished; and in less than a year, the High-Line park will be completed, making this plot precisely where one of its limits end.
