SPRING STREET SALT SHED - Interview with Richard Dattner founder of Dattner Architects

July 24, 2019

Richard Dattner of Dattner Architects is the architect behind the sculptural Spring Street Salt Shed at the intersection of Spring Street and West Side Highway in Manhattan. The salt crystal shape inspired the building’s exterior design, a peculiar structure that has piqued the interest of spectators and made it an ideal backdrop for a number of fashion shoots. Richard Dattner tells the intricate and exciting story of a somewhat mundane project on its face that became perhaps one of the most complicated and challenging projects of his career.
