The new video is for the Emerging New York Architects (ENYA) committee for an exhibition titled Harlem Edge: Cultivating Connections currently on view at the Center for Architecture. It expands upon the recent ideas competition put on by ENYA for the redevelopment of the West 135th Street marine transfer station located on the Hudson River.
The Harlem Edge: Cultivating Connections design ideas competition explored the redevelopment of the decommissioned Department of Sanitation marine transfer station. The site offered the opportunity to engage the local West Harlem community with the waterfront, and echoes recent efforts by New York City to reclaim the waterfront for a variety of publicly beneficial uses, as outlined in Department of City Planning’s Vision 2020, and the Comprehensive Waterfront Action Plan for New York City.
We think its a great project, it’s the kind of visionary imagining that Harlem, NYC and the nation needs for the 21st century.
The winners and selected entries will be exhibited at the Center for Architecture July – October, 2012.
What do you think the final space should be?
