BROKEN ELLIPSE


APPROACH

The Design Trust for Public Spaces launched a competition to reimagine Grand Army Plaza. Though home to an historic triumphal arch that marks the entrance to Prospect Park, the space primarily functions as a traffic circle, resulting in a poor pedestrian experience. Our proposal inserted a series of elevated walkways to connect the disparate pieces, creating a variety of activity centers. Additionally, the elevated walkway would have a number of skylights and openings to allow for a connected experience through the multiple levels of the project.
