Our collaborative design for the East River State Park was a winner of a 2010 Merit Award from the NY Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects for Unbuilt Projects. This project was featured in an article titled "Beyond the Familiar: The Search for Urban Space in New York City," TOPOS and was exhibited at the d3 Natural Systems 2009 Exhibit at Grace Gallery, City College of NY. The three winning teams of an original Williamsburg Waterfront State Park Competition sponsored by Williamsburg grassroots groups in 2005, have been working together to promote a sustainable, innovative, and fun park design for the unique piece of open space located along the East River between N7 and N9th on Kent Avenue. This State Park design is organized around 3 objectives: waterfront access and stabilization, community, art, and educational features, and sustainable technologies. Our original entry was funded in part by a Kalil Grant for Smart Design from Parsons.CREDITS: Collaboration with Allison Duncan, Sarah Ludington, Petra Mager, Gareth Mahon and Stephanie Saulmon.
