South Street Seaport: Re-Imagined

September '15 - January '16

This partnered project, conducted as part of an advanced architecture course, takes an attempt at the much-needed revitalization process of Manhattan's South Street Seaport neighborhood through a Revit assembly design. Between crumbling infrastructure and unused public spaces, the area lacks presence in New York's metropolis.

The Proposed Site

The proposed design travels down the neighborhood and into the East River, replacing existing infrastructure. Our path  boasts a walking platform above the buildings, which facilitates access to spectacular views of the Brooklyn Bridge.

For similar reasons (and to accommodate for a highway currently in existence), we converted the lower portion of our design into an open green space, which can be accessed via the overpass.
