North and Central America->United States->New York->New York
This is a student project by Nicholas Gotthardt for LARCH 640 in Autumn 2009.
"As an introduction into site design, the task of this project was to design a small urban park on the site of an existing temporary open-air gallery in New York City.
Currently, the gallery is operating on a temporary land lease. The proposed plan works to support and expand the gallery while in operation and carry on it's function once the site is built out.
Design features include a raised staging and exhibition plaza, decked lunch-seating with green picnic patches and a series of street tree arboretums." --Nicholas Gotthardt
In the first year students are introduced to basic and advanced techniques of design and representation. Students explore landscape architectural design at the site scale with an emphasis on environmental contexts, site systems and natural/human communities.
