Southpoint: Ruin To Rejuvenation

Submission selected for publication.

This submission to the Southpoint: Ruin to Rejuvenation Design Competition was conceived as a series of ‘follies’ in the landscape of Roosevelt Island, NY. The program consisted of a large Arts Center, complete with performance venues, gallery spaces, eating areas, artist studios and residences. The original smallpox hospital, now in ruin, was to be incorporated into the design. The concept provided for the ruin to be another ‘follie’ in the landscape, and to contain the outdoor sculpture garden, as well as being the backdrop to one of the performance venues. This entry was completed with two other colleagues (Kevin Teel and Seth Hanley), and was selected for publication.
