The sheer surprise of encountering a hill on a roof in NYC is heightened by design elements derived from MINI cars that utilize object-in-field design, like deploying brake lights into a field of sheet metal instead of at a seam.

Re-Imagining Seward Park Redevelopment (SPURA) on the Lower East Side, New York

Recent news coverage for the 7-acre parcel, Manhattan’s biggest undeveloped,  publicly owned development site south of 96th Street, has provided the chance to contemplate many important urban issues.

  • Project: Manhattan Mountain
  • Location: Seward Park Urban Renewal Site(SPURA) in Lower East Side, New York
