South Street Seaport

 Back to Projects list

2008. International Ideas Competition ENYA (Emerging New York Architects), 3rd Prize

South Street Seaport is the only area in Manhattan with a low profile and a historic maritime architecture. To preserve its qualities and reinforce its identity, without converting the area in a museum district, 3 guidelines are proposed for future developments. To keep the atmosphere and roughness of the place, reusing existing buildings, reinterpreting former uses, the open space plays a main role in the strategy. Where the city meets the river(s) things happen(ed).

Maximize perimeter of water-land contact.

Reinforce the horizontality of the skyline using the spaces under FDR.
