Hudson Yards is one of the most exciting developments in the recent years in New York and it will be a landmark that will redefine the place in the future.
So keeping that in mind, I tried to keep the design more user-friendly with all the future tech innovations synced together. I have tried to create a dynamic space which can be used by residents and office workers, and as an entertainment destination for visitors from across the Country.

The purpose was to create a space into a vibrant, pedestrian-friendly, transit-oriented mixed-use design to make it look like one of the great transformations of New York City.

As the design was more about creating future possibilities, I have tried to use the future innovations in the normal city life like Self driving cars, drone taxis, special cycling path with light sensors, monorail bridge connecting all the towers with a pedestrian above it. I have used some exterior elements and landscape structures with creative lighting sources to complete the design.

I have done a thorough study and research to make these images with respect to the design. I haven’t really gone with scifi things but mainly kept my focus on being realistic for the next 10-15 years and how design will improve the lifestyle of people and bringing communities together.

Afters hundreds of hours of work and going through many references and creating many compositions, I was able to finalise 4 renderings for this project, which shows my design and how the space can be used for multiple purposes in the future.

One of the biggest challenges I faced while doing it was doing the design and getting the right composition that can narrate the concept. I went through several references and created mood boards to get the right look and feel I wanted to achieve.

Lighting was one tricky task on these images as the main purpose was to make atmospheric images. 

I learned a lot and improved my skills while doing this project as it challenged me to up my archviz skills further.

Please have a look here at the VR version of this project:

After taking the ArchViz Masterclass at SOA, I got the opportunity to connect with many amazing artists from around the world. Since then, I have been travelling to Europe to learn more about archviz and other studios.

I am now running a Boutique archviz studio with my Partner Sumeet Gupta, who is also an ex-soa student. Our studio name is ARTMULTIPLY. We both have always been passionate about architectural visualisation and have always tried to push our limits further.

We have been fortunate to work with some of the most amazing studios and clients around the world. Our main goal is to improve every day and be able to create the best archviz studio in Asia.

Once again, I thank SOA for the featuring opportunity and I hope you like this work.
