The Brooklyn borough of New York is undergoing social, cultural and physical changes. Projects with a strong urban imprint and entire neighborhoods are changing their face.
The project is located in the "Grand Army Plaza", where a subway station is also located.
The architectural action seeks to turn the traffic circle into an active urban square for a meeting and relaxation corners. The gesture is simple - tilting the geometry of the square at a slight angle creates a dialogue between the amphitheater structure and the convergence, and below it trade. Opposite it, a biological pool of water is present in its appearance. The public space between the historic Arc de Triomphe and the amphitheater, also as an arc structure, is framed by a double avenue of trees, separating the noise of the cars from the new urban space.
