Sustainable and resilient design principles are central to the design, construction and maintenance of our park. Coastal surge and climate change are factors that we must address with the serious consideration they demand. Rather than contributing to the problem, we will be at the forefront of the solution, and share with others what we learn along the way.
The sun is always radiating free energy- we plan to harness it, utilizing solar panels for energy collection, weather protection and as an educational opportunity - because that's just common sense.
A permeable ground plane is a flexible, adaptable and beautiful surface that can easily be integrated with vegetation creating bioswales that aid in stormwater management and bridge runoff filtration, while also naturally delineating spacial separations for different uses.
We're a nonprofit organization working to reopen the park below the Brooklyn Bridge in Manhattan.
We need your help to realize our vision.
