Bushwick Inlet Park Design Guiding Principles to Consider
- Bushwick Inlet Park should be a world-class park, reflecting a 21st-century, resilient design for the entire City.
- Bushwick Inlet Park should adhere to an updated, cohesive master plan for the entire 27 acres rather than a series of piecemeal, stand-alone designs.
- The 2007 master plan should remain the overall guide for the allocation of active and passive uses within the Park that will evolve through the scoping process.
4 essential things we learned from the Envisioning Bushwick Inlet Park series:
- Design for Excellence! Bushwick Inlet Park should be the City’s next premier waterfront park. The opportunity here should not be squandered.
- Design for the Community! Community involvement makes for the best design. Consider community diversity, that parks are community spaces, and encourage connectivity.
- Design for Resiliency! Resiliency matters – we must design for sea level rise and storm surges.
- Design Passive Spaces to be Engaging! Simplicity can be powerful, creating oases in the middle of the city
