Mill River Park in Stamford, Connecticut by Gray Organschi

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

Through an open ideas competition, Gray Organschi was awarded the commission to design a threshold between a restored riverbank and an urban edge in Stamford, Connecticut.  Their urban porch proposal is composed of a shaded lattice formed from simple framing propped by gangs of timber pilings driven at slight angles to emulate the trunks of the trees in the meadow to the north.  Deep slender joists of standard dimensional lumber, bolted into pre-tensioned units, are aggregated and pulled taut to create an expanded grid of wood, the upward pressure of the timber tripods forcing the trellis to undulate slightly, a torsion fostered by the longitudinal geometries and connection system of the continuous timber frame.  Beneath it, a simple banding of concrete planks, interrupted selectively by broad joints of reinforced thyme and grass, provides a steady surface for strolling, seating and a chess game.

Pier C Park in Hoboken, NJ by Michael Van Valkenburgh

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011
  • Architects: Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, Inc.
  • Project Year: 2009 – 2010

Pier C Park is located along the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway in Hoboken, New Jersey and is part of the city’s ongoing efforts to provide recreational open space at the water’s edge. An active recreation pier designed to accommodate users of all ages, the new park complements neighboring parks in program and form. Pier C represents a new generation of waterfront programming, defined by recreation and public access rather than industrial or maritime uses. The new pier sits within the rectilinear footprint of the long-absent original Pier C, with arcing walkways that capitalize on views to Manhattan as well as the active uses of the pier.
