This project for The Van Alen Institute’s Parachute Pavilion International Design Competition 2005 won third prize of nearly nine hundred entries and was widely published in various magazines, books and journals.
Recognizing that the pavilion with restaurant, retail and a tourism office cannot alone transform Coney Island, the proposal, “Under the Boardwalk”, seeks to heighten the public spectacle of Coney Island’s existing infrastructure: The Reigalmann Boardwalk and the landmark parachute jump. The scheme steps and extends the public boardwalk back to become the pavilion roof. The project spans 15,200 sq. ft.
