Replacing the deteriorated Pier 54, the new “Pier55” would be a bold addition to the Manhattan waterfront — a $170 million, futuristic park built atop an undulating platform 186 feet off the Hudson River shoreline with a series of wooded nooks and three performance venues, including an amphitheater, and acting as a marine sanctuary for striped bass and guard the city against storms.

Uneven Growth: Tactical Urbanisms for Expanding.

MoMA [NYC] USA EE.UU.
metalocus, JOSÉ JUAN BARBA.
2014—Uneven Growth: Tactical Urbanisms for Expanding Megacities, a 14-month initiative to examine new architectural possibilities that address the rapid and uneven growth of six global metropolises — Hong Kong, Istanbul, Lagos, Mumbai, New York, and Rio de Janeiro — culminates in an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art from November 22, 2014 , through May 10, 2015 .
