Gateway NRA Revitalization
Mapping the Ecotone (2007)

Collaboration with Rikako Wakabayashi.
This project creates a highly visible, experiential public infrastructure that responds to the shifting ecosystem of Jamaica Bay and defines a new vision of the relationship between nature and people. Though within New York City, it is a stretch to call this an urban park in the context of Manhattan. Gateway must be made more accessible in terms of its idea.
