East River Bridge Building

The initial site analysis of the FDR and the East side of Manhattan began with diagramming the relationship of programs along the edge.  This was in order to understand the edges of Manhattan, Roosevelt Island, and Queens as vertically thick edges with no real relationship between one another.  Also within the site analysis was a discovery of about 200 feet of buildable land available due to the pier head line along the edge. 

The building is accessed from two ramps that stretch into the street grid along 95th street as well as through a circulation tower within the FDR East River Drive Park.  All access points converge onto the main platform and ‘bridge’ of the building which spans 930’.  Above this platform are the residential units, which are accessed through multiple circulation cores, slicing into the residential block allowing for light and air to carve into the building.  The main platform is a series of ramps and walkways for both commercial space and art gallery.
