Our project, West Harlem Piers Park, was selected as one of eight by the Architectural League for its New York Designs 2008 series with the theme “Thresholds”. Barbara Wilks, principal and Johannes Feder, project designer, presented the project at the Urban Center on May 29th.
West Harlem Piers Park acts as a threshold between land and water, the urban and the natural, and the past and the present. The project redevelops a forgotten industrial strip of land along the Hudson. The revitalized park serves as a new focal point for the surrounding neighborhood, providing bike and foot paths, grassy areas for get-togethers and relaxation, and new walkways integrating the park with 125th Street.
