A Brooklyn Bridge Pop-Up Park for Waterfall Watching?

New, 16 comments

This is what one might call the Brooklyn Bridge Pop-Up Park, a concept from dlandstuio for the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy for a temporary viewing area for one of Olafur Eliasson's waterfalls under the Brooklyn Bridge. Per Tropolism, which had renderings and info, "the design is like a pop-up shop" for the park and includes "wide swaths of color painted in stripes over the asphalt to create both a more comfortable walking surface for pedestrians and add color and texture." there are also grass mounds, a sand area with umbrellas and "hay bales that get seeded and grow grass like a chia pet as the summer progresses." The designers, by the way, are also behind the cool Sponge Park concept in Gowanus.
