Sara D Roosevelt Park REDUX

Lower East Side, Manhattan, New York 

Faculty: Andy Bernheimer


 This project examines the beautiful (but inactive) existing buildings on the park to create a dialogue between the "old & new". The "old" considers re-using the existing tectonics and program as a foundation to harvest new public activity and increase bike safety using heavy timber. The new bike paths stitch together NYC's fragmented bike path infrastructure at the urban scale. In essence, this "old&new" dialogue uncovers the richness at Sara D. Roosevelt Park.
