P.S.19 Marino P. Jeantet School

For one of New York’s most overcrowded schools, MBB leveraged the flexibility of structural steel to create a 97,000-square-foot addition to house new classrooms, a gymnasium, and two cafeterias for nearly 2,000 students.

One Vanderbilt

Despite its scale, complexity, challenging site, and high-performance features, the 67-story project is moving ahead of schedule and under budget. Partners on the project attribute this achievement to tight coordination, a steel-first sequence, and an all-star design and construction team.

Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge

The original Tappan Zee Bridge, revolutionary in its day, was well past the end of its operational life. Its challenging site called for structural creativity, a modern cable-stayed design, and careful environmental precautions.

The Shed at Hudson Yards

With a broad brief for a cultural facility the DSR/Rockwell team enlisted top notch collaborators to produce a muscular, fine-tuned kinetic structure. Its steel-ETFE combination combines high performance and striking aesthetics.

Rockefeller University

Rockefeller University's new state-of-the-art laboratory facility was assembled in 19 midnight installments as 19 prefabricated steel modules were transported across the East River.

MoMA Blade Stair

Acting as a threshold to the museum's recent expansion, the stair's minimal expression was achieved through structural innovation that allowed a vertical steel spine to hang from the roof structure to support stairs and landings without lateral bracing.

Pier 35

A collaboration between SHoP, ARUP, and Ken Smith Workshop extends open space to an urban porch at Pier 35 on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

The Vessel at Hudson Yards

Heatherwick Studio's nickname-garnering form gives visitors a variety of superb views, a slight risk of vertigo, and a workout. Its design and construction team solved tricky problems of rigidity, safety, and buildability to create an urban mini-environment where visitors can climb into a realm of surprise.
