Zuccotti Park

Following the destruction of Liberty Plaza Park on September 11, 2001, Brookfield Properties hired Cooper Robertson to restore and re-imagine this important public space. Our design for the park, renamed Zuccotti Park, restores historic pedestrian access from the World Trade Center site to Broadway. The site of a 1773 protest against the Tea Act, The Park has taken on further, recent historic significance as the epicenter of the Occupy Wall Street protests in 2011.
