Five Possible Redesigns For the Port Authority Bus Terminal

pelli-clarke-pelli-architectsThe Port Authority has finally unveiled the five finalists in its Bus Terminal design competition. The five proposals — from major firms Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, Arcadis of New York, Hudson Terminal Center Collaborative, Perkins Eastman, and Archilier Architecture Consortium — will now be judged by the PA as the bi-state agency decides the fate of the deteriorating, 66-year-old terminal.

Costs for the redesigns start at $3.7 billion (Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects) and quickly skyrocket to a whopping $15.3 billion (Hudson Terminal Center Collaborative).

There also exists the possibility that the PA will do something completely different, since the proposals were originally considered to be an inspiration for the final project.

You can check out images of the full proposals below or via the competition page. —PABT Competition
