Six buildings have recently been recognized with Excellence in Structural Engineering Awards, a program hosted annually by the Structural Engineers Association of New York.
The winning projects by structural engineering firms in the New York City area had to impress the judges with their creativity of complex design, innovative use of materials and technique, and sustainability of design in social, economic, or environmental considerations in order to score a top spot in one of the four major categories.
Following are this year's award-winning structures:
Krause Gateway Center — Structural Engineer: Silman; Architects: Renzo Piano Building Workshop, OPN Architects
One Thousand Museum — Structural Engineer: DeSimone; Architects: Zaha Hadid Architects, ODP Architects & Interior Design

The Shed, of course. Technology I didn't know about:
In the (forthcoming) western section of Hudson Yards, the trash from the apartment buildings will be piped out through three separate chutes at 45 mph. It’ll be ground and dehydrated along the way, ending up at a dispensary on 12th Avenue.
The trains running under the platform generate heat, and it can get up to 150 degrees down below. So the deck is filled with pipes that circulate cool water under the trees to keep them from being cooked.
A tech stack — the framework for software, living in the cloud and supporting different systems such as elevators and cameras — stores all of Hudson Yards’ data in one place. When “all these new sensors that come into the market, driverless vehicles, drone delivery services, all kinds of stuff, we’re going to be more easily able to accommodate,” explains Hudson Yards’ Luke Falk.
I'm sure that trash super highway will never jam, but imagine.
Tuttle to the rescue!
