New changing pavillions and entry sequence at the HighBridge Public Pool
The 2011 Parsons Design Workshop (a design build program operated by the School of Constructed Environments) collaborated with the NYC Parks Department and the High Bridge Coalition to revitalize the Highbridge Pool and Recreation Center, a historic landmark in New York City. Due to the limited space within the existing building, recreational programs must be suspended during the summer to accommodate the storage and changing space required for the thousands of pool-goers. Upon completion, the Splash House-- a pair of outdoor pavilions --will allow the recreation center to remain open year-round and offer more recreational programs to the Washington Heights community.
