Back to the Island

Description

Taking advantage of the proximity of Prospect Park’s green spaces, this scheme re-imagines the Plaza as a flexible, more urban space that could be used for a range of public events including markets, festivals, art shows, etc.

Features

  • berms removed
  • traffic pushed to Plaza’s edges, expanding center oval to form large urban plaza
  • 2 bridges for pedestrians/bicyclists connect Plaza Streets East and West to center oval
  • underpass for pedestrians/bicyclists connects Prospect Park to center oval
  • café and lounge bring people to the Plaza at all hours of day
