UPDATE – March 20

With the concept of the ARM in mind, I developed it’s massing accordingly to the master plan of Hudson Yards from our brief resources.

_Through the rough sketches, I would like to have the mass as simply as possible so it could strengthen the initial concept without any spare additional “legs”._

_Also, By sketching on the master plan, I see that vertically there is need to have a connection between the ARM and the VESSEL underneath. This should be noticed and developed further in the next stage._

_At first, I think the materiality for the ARM could be covered by 100% transparent glass, then I came up with the idea of divide the skin of the ARM structure into multiple parts where it will be opaque glass, this gives the skywalkers a feeling of resting and framing the view better rather than distracting by spinning around._

_I collected a few photos of what helps me form an understanding of how sky bridges connections could be captures emotionally._

_Internal spaces are put on my list of potential views I could end up having at least one in order to explain how it will look like from the inside, and these pictures evoke a lot more ideas for me at this stage:_

_And having some part of the structure opening out to the sky:_

_Finally, I put together the atmospheric images I saved long time ago which reminds me of interesting compositions, colour palettes, lighting conditions and camera angles that I can study and learn from._

    Hi Duy, I like so much the concept and it’s social meaning. I think you could work both on galss textures (opaque/transparent/mirror) internal lighting (maybe exterior night view?) and different weather condition (interior of the bridge with rain?).
    I don’t know why but you make me remind this image of Muti Gianluca (totally different context)

    Keep on going

    Thanks, @Flow , the rainy mood interior image you sent is an emotion riser. Have a lot to learn from!
