“Cabin,” a concrete cast of a New England style shed by British artist and Turner Prize winner Rachel Whiteread is on Governors Island’s Discovery Hill overlooking New York harbor. Strewn around the cabin are numerous bronze casts of discarded objects including bottles, cans and other refuse. Some of the objects were sourced on the island itself. The Hills were designed by landscape architect Adriaan Geuze and his team from West 8, which has offices in Rotterdam, New York and Belgium. There are four hills, all of them constructed of demolition rubble, fill that was brought to Governors Island by barge and lightweight pumice. The Hills will open to the public on July 19, 2016.
