What Inspired Vessel?

The inspiration behind Vessel included a simple wooden staircase. Heatherwick saw the staircase in an abandoned building and was struck by the strangeness of a steps that led to nowhere. Heatherwick has also cited Indian Stairwells, jungle jims and Busby Berkeley musicals with lots of steps as influences.

Vessel also has a clear connection to the endless stairs images produced by Dutch artist, M.C. Escher in the 1950s and 60s. Whether you find these images beguiling or disturbing, you can't deny they're out of the ordinary. The same can be said of Vessel.

Even in its current unfinished state, Vessel looks like something from a science fiction film. Heatherwick's main goal is to lift people up above ground level to give them a view of the city that's new and fresh.

This is the power of the high line, Heatherwick says, to give a "changed perspective on the world."
