Hell's Kitchen Competition



Hells Kitchen South, New York, NY


Commissioned by the Design Trust for Public Space, Floating City investigates Hell's Kitchen South's unique urban conditions, using the neighborhood as a testing ground for many of the issues surrounding the 21st C. city, including the role of infrastructure, the boundary between public and private, and the identity of a neighborhood. Floating City defines three areas of intervention: 1) Hell's Park: a park to balance the noise and pollution, 2) Signal City: buildings to act as a billboard for the neighborhood, 3) Zoning for Voids: green "Gap Gardens" into development.
