A collaboration among SWA/Balsley and WEISS/MANFREDI, with ARUP as the prime consultant and infrastructure designer, Hunter's Point South in Queens, is described "as an international model of urban ecology and a world laboratory for innovative sustainable thinking. The site is waterfront and city, gateway and sanctuary, blank slate and pentimento. These readings suggest an approach to the landscape that enhances what is unique about the site, while framing a new multi-layered identity as a recreational and cultural destination. The design incorporates active and passive recreation and a broad array of sustainable initiatives."
