Update on the brief for Hudson Yards

Insight into the brief.

A query presented by the One WYG team with regards to the brief.

Question; 
Can you clarify on the brief are we meant to design around the existing context ie: should we be building ‘over the rail yard’
 
Or design around as if we were are integrating into the Hudson yard development? Brief can be interpreted either way i think?

Any steer you can give would be helpful

Answer;

Our intention with the brief was that the teams should design within the published MasterPlan published by the Hudson Yards project (ie on top of the steel platform which will be constructed above the existing rail yards) - but replacing the existing green space and residential building with a new design for the sports arena and adjacent residential tower.
