Open Crit: Governors Island Master Plan


Governors Island.

West 8 / Rogers Marvel Architects / Diller Scofidio + Renfro / Mathews Nielsen / Urban Design +

The Park and Public Space Master Plan, developed by a design team led by the landscape architecture firm West 8 along with Rogers Marvel Architects, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects, and Urban Design +, reflects extensive input from New Yorkers over the past two years at meetings, workshops, and interactive exhibits, as well as an online display of design proposals and the Governors Island blog. A recently launched website presents the entire plan, including detailed renderings, and is open for more public feedback as the project moves into its next stages. The Park and Public Space Master Plan will also be exhibited in Building 110 on the island and in the Battery Maritime Building in Lower Manhattan beginning on 06.05.10, when the island opens to the public.
