The architects at Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates describe 30 and 10 Hudson Yards as “Designed as a pair, the two towers tilt in opposing directions – one faces the city and the other toward the Hudson River – engaging in purposeful dialogue with one another. The towers’ dynamic skyline presence offers varying experiences depending on the viewing location and marks Hudson Yards within the New York cityscape.”
