• Zuccotti Park

    Manhattan, New York, New York

    Destroyed on September 11, 2001, the former Liberty Plaza Park is both restored and re-imagined in this design. The diagonal walkway from the World Trade Center site to Broadway is recreated with 24 granite benches, 53 honey locust trees, and a paving stone pattern, all set on this diagonal axis. On the walking surface, milk-white glass pavers, set flush with the granite slabs, are lit from below by 500 lights, transforming the park at night. The design received a 2008 AIA Honor Award and was featured in Architectural Record.
