I <3 Continuous Fulfillment Center.
After a nationwide hullabaloo in which hundreds of cities prostrated themselves at Amazon’s feet in the hopes that the company would open its second headquarters in their jurisdiction, Amazon is coming to New York. What will this do to the city? Will it help New York grow, as the state’s governor Andrew Cuomo seems to believe? Or will it place more stress on an already strained and aging subway system, and exacerbate the city’s housing inequality?
As New York readies itself for the arrival of Jeff Bezos’s personal helipad, Fast Companyasked the New York-based Architecture Research Office (ARO)–the American Institute of Architects’ New York State firm of the year– to imagine what Bezos’s New York will look like.
Their answer? A city turned into a giant fulfillment center.
