DailyLand: Pier 57

This project has been around the blogs lately, and it's an interesting meshing of site and architecture - driven by the unique opportunity of creating space atop a pier in New York City. Via Bustler, the team includes LOT-EK, with developer Young Woo & Associates The project "...foresees a rooftop park crowning a small shopping center of local artisan stores built with recycled shipping containers."

Luckily, World Landscape Architect came through and mentioned that West 8 is also on the team providing design of the public spaces... a fact overlooked by much of the press.

  1. Its great to see public spaces rising up out of unexpected woodworks. This trend of urban renewal will provide huge dividends, especially over lengths of time, for New York and for other cities who choose to partake in this much needed activity. Turning the old into the new, to create clean public spaces is one trend that needs to continue.
