Exhibition: The Park at the Center of the World: Five Visions for Governors Island
The exhibition features five landscape architecture and architecture teams selected to present their design visions for the future open spaces on the 172-acre Governors Island. Governors Island’s open space will include the two mile Great Promenade that provides outstanding views of Lower Manhattan and New York Harbor, a new park, and restoration of the landscape in the Island’s National Historic District. Showcasing conceptual and illustrative designs by the five teams for the open space of Governors Island, the exhibition provides a platform for public feedback before the jury will take place in late June 2007. A design team will be selected by mid summer.
This is on display May 31 to July 25. Today is the first weekend day it will be up.
