Looks like fractal art. Almost like a blooming metallic flower. Great art in my eyes.

I love it. I don't love the wait we have until we can get in it though...

This building looks very Dutch, imo. Like something in the Hague or Rotterdam.

...It is composed of a structural steel frame covered by polished, copper-colored cladding. Reminiscent of an M.C. Escher print, Vessel features 154 intricately-interconnected flights of stairs with 2,500 individual steps and 80 landings, all rising from a base that is 50 feet in diameter. Additional mechanical and finishing components such as balustrades, lighting, cladding and paving, as well as landscaping elements, will be installed over the next year.

Once it opens to the public in the spring of 2019, Vessel will offer the public one vertical mile of climbing, to enjoy amazing views of Manhattan’s West Side. It can accommodate about 700 people at a time, and could be used for special events, if acoustics and lighting prove suitable.

Stephen M. Ross, Chairman of Related Companies, said, “Great public spaces bring people together and define neighborhoods. The Hudson Yards Public Square and Gardens and its centerpiece Vessel, a new kind of vertical public space, will become the new gathering place for Manhattan’s West Side and a destination for New Yorkers and visitors alike. I look forward to early 2019 when we all can enjoy Manhattan’s newest public space and experience, interact with and climb Vessel.”

My guess for now is no. Possibly closed during rain or adverse weather events. Similar to the Spanish steps in Times Square that are sometimes closed off temporarily when its wet or snowing or just plain windy. Safety wise I'd imagine this would be the case given the open-air nature of the Vessel.
