Queens, New York
2004

In collaboration with MVRDV and Stoss Landscape Architecture.

The Olympic and post-Olympic Village deserves intensity and visibility. This is proposed by dividing the given plot into two radical, synergetic elements: one empty, one full. An urban public space at the river faces a dense urban neighborhood: the Village on the Beach. The Village condenses all the program into a portion of the site to stimulate a NYC-style urbanity that would otherwise be diluted on the entire site.
