NEW YORK, NY, 2003
Commissioned to design a temporary enclosure for Ground Zero, we proposed the construction of a large earthen berm to secure the site during recovery and clearing. Realizing that the “problem” of Ground Zero was not one that could be solved on the site itself, we proposed a strategy of disaggregation, locating replacement construction elsewhere in the city. At the same time, we proposed that Ground Zero become a point of dissemination for the greening and pedestrianization of all of downtown.
