Reinventing Grand Army Plaza

In this winning competition entry submitted to the Design Trust for Public Space, Grand Army Plaza is untangled by succinctly layering and expanding conflicting modes of travel. A new transportation hub is created by simultaneously submerging Flatbush Avenue and elevating the park above. The entrance to Prospect Park is expanded to now flow up and through the Union Memorial Arch, allowing pedestrians to finally move from Flatbush Avenue through the Plaza and into the park unimpeded.
