Newark Visitor’s Center in Newark, New Jersey by Baer, Shifman-Nathan Architects

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

Article source: Baer, Shifman-Nathan Architects

Designing the Newark Visitor’s Center meant bridging between opposing forces. On the one hand, there was a need to address the adjacency to the metropolitan center of NYC and its main transportation Hub – the Penn Station. This perspective implied the creation of a vibrant architectural event, which is capable of containing the centrality of Newark and of the reality of New Jersey as one of the most populated states in the US. On the other hand, there was a strong pull to blend with an image of a Garden State, or at least create a gateway to suburban America, which is perceived as a place of refuge, away from the metropolitan intensity.
