In 2004, Allied Works and landscape architects Gustafson Guthrie Nichol were selected to design a waterfront park adjacent to the United Nations Headquarters along the East River in New York City. The project will reconnect the city to the river, and complete the ring park and path system proposed by Mayor Bloomberg around the whole of Manhattan. Built over the river on a series of cantilevered and floating supports, the project envisions a diverse terrain for public use, including new bridges and overlooks, a multi-use path and recreational field, and smaller ‘pocket’ parks for quiet reflection.
