Site and Concept Our site, where the Lincoln Tunnel emerges into midtown Manhattan, is one of the noisiest locations in the city. We also discovered that the nearby neighborhoods of Hudson Yards and Hell’s Kitchen are rated in the top ten for noise complaints in all five boroughs of NYC.

One of the defining characteristics of the Audioasis is its wings—large curvilinear planes of concrete which reflect the noise of the city back towards the city. They surround the base of the building, and are also present in a smaller form on each apartment level. These smaller wings also double as a shading device and light shelf.
