Data: Abril de 2008

Pro­gra­ma:
 — Adap­tar as for­mas de cir­cu­la­ção às neces­si­da­des do pre­sen­te;
 — Cri­ar for­mas de cir­cu­la­ção pedo­nal mais segu­ras;
 — Incluir uma área onde pos­sam ocor­rer os mer­ca­dos locais, assim como áre­as de per­for­man­ce artís­ti­ca.

Con­cei­to:
…everything, albeit dis­tor­ted, is com­pres­sed into that one small cir­cle. That is why a game can be played by tho­se who are pre­pa­red to pene­tra­te the sur­fa­ce…” (Escher, 1989, p.60)

Propôs-se um sis­te­ma de dife­ren­tes super­fí­ci­es e pla­ta­for­mas que fun­ci­o­nas­sem como um meio para recu­pe­rar a con­ti­nui­da­de entre a pra­ça e a sua envol­ven­te, e que per­mi­tis­sem cri­ar novas pos­si­bi­li­da­des para a vida em espa­ço urba­no.

A pro­pos­ta cri­ou uma hie­rar­quia base­a­da na inten­si­da­de e fun­ci­o­na­li­da­de dos dife­ren­tes níveis de cir­cu­la­ção. Des­te modo, foi con­si­de­ra­do impor­tan­te man­ter a cir­cu­la­ção auto­mó­vel e a cir­cu­la­ção pedo­nal tão sepa­ra­das quan­to pos­sí­vel, atra­vés de pas­sa­gens sub­ter­râ­ne­as, pla­ta­for­mas e cor­re­do­res ver­des.

Propôs-se uma nova ave­ni­da que ligas­se o Pros­pect Park e o cen­tro do Grand Army Pla­za. A nova super­fí­cie ofe­re­ce­ria dife­ren­tes opções para alcan­çar o seu cen­tro e des­te che­gar aos bair­ros envol­ven­tes. As áre­as de jar­dim exis­ten­tes seri­am tra­ta­das, e seri­am cri­a­dos cami­nhos que per­mi­tam a sua vivên­cia e inte­gra­ção como par­te do espa­ço públi­co.

Local: Grand Army Pla­za, Nova Ior­que

Expo­si­ção Públi­ca: Setem­bro de 2008, Grand Army Pla­za.

Date: April 2008

Pro­gram:
 — Adapt the cir­cu­la­ti­on effi­ci­ency to the pre­sent needs;
 — Cre­a­te forms of safer pedes­tri­an cir­cu­la­ti­on;
- Inclu­de an area for local mar­kets and art per­for­man­ces.

Con­cept:
“…everything, albeit dis­tor­ted, is com­pres­sed into that one small cir­cle. That is why a game can be played by tho­se who are pre­pa­red to pene­tra­te the sur­fa­ce…” (Escher, 1989, p.60)

The pro­po­sal was a sys­tem of dif­fe­rent sur­fa­ces and plat­forms that would func­ti­on as a means to res­to­re the con­ti­nuity betwe­en the squa­re and its sur­roun­dings and to allow cre­a­ting new pos­si­bi­li­ti­es for life in urban spa­ce.

The pro­po­sal cre­a­ted a hie­rar­chy based on strength and func­ti­o­na­lity of the dif­fe­rent levels of cir­cu­la­ti­on, so it was con­si­de­red impor­tant to keep car traf­fic and pedes­tri­an cir­cu­la­ti­on as sepa­ra­te as pos­si­ble, through subways, plat­forms and gre­en cor­ri­dors.

A new ave­nue lin­king the cen­ter of Pros­pect Park and Grand Army Pla­za was pro­po­sed. The new sur­fa­ces offer dif­fe­rent opti­ons to achi­e­ve its cen­ter and sur­roun­ding neigh­borho­ods. The exis­ting gar­den are­as would be tre­a­ted, and paths would be cre­a­ted whi­ch allow their sur­vi­val and inte­gra­ti­on as part of the public spa­ce.
