BQE Community Outreach Event
This outreach is a continuation of the project's community outreach conducted in collaboration with MARP (Myrtle Avenue Revitalization Project, a BID/Business Improvement District on Myrtle Avenue). It was an opportunity to present design ideas to the community at large, and gain their comments and insights.

The Urban Web at Coleman Oval Skate
The Urban web project takes an underused park adjacent to the Coleman Skate Park in the Lower East Side and makes a unique space defined by threaded trees. The main idea takes inspiration from the surrounding elements, including the geometries of the Manhattan Bridge, the unique street grid of the lower east side, and the placement of vertical elements in the small park. The space could be used for street performances, or just to frame an urban room.
