ArchMedium announced the winnners of their “New York Theater City” International Architecture Competition for Students. The theater would revitalized new and small local theater in a city saturated with tourism and tired reruns. The contest proposal called for an "urban theatre campus where smaller companies can dispose of rehearsal spaces, and the new spectacles can show themselves to the world offering an always young, new and different cultural activity."
The site is a junkyard for deteriorating railroad cars, and happens to provide connections to important venues because the High Line connected to important local centers. The results took the urban scale down to the human scale and infused a great vibrancy of culture.
