Pools on Park Avenue

POOLpark

Dumpster diving has gotten a whole lot cooler. As part of the city’s Summer Streets Initiative, three dumpster pools will be installed on Park Avenue between 40th and 41st Streets for the first three Saturdays in August, open 7am-1pm. City dwellers who brave the summer heat will be rewarded with views of the MetLife Building and Grand Central Terminal. Macro-Sea along with Vamos Architects designed the temporary, above-ground pools (which are cleaner and larger than the average dumpster) encircled with metal decks. Changing rooms as well as portable showers and toilets will also be provided. Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan describes the project as a “Park Avenue boardwalk.”

25 Big Ideas for NYC

Crain’s New York asked several architects and other public figures to share their thoughts about how to make NYC “better, smarter stronger, wealthier and maybe, just maybe, a little friendlier.” Contributors include Paul Katz, FAIA, president, Kohn Pedersen Fox; Stanton Eckstut, FAIA, founding principal, Ehrenkrantz Eckstut & Kuhn; Dan Kaplan, AIA, and Mark Strauss, FAIA, senior partners, FXFOWLE Architects; and Richard Olcott, FAIA, partner, Ennead Architects (formerly Polshek Partnership Architects). Suggestions range from far-out (building a posh gambling resort on Governors Island) to modest (adding ferry stops for commuters from nearby communities). View all of these visionary ideas in a slide show essay format.

Iron Designer!

You’ve seen the chef’s version, but now it’s architects’ turn to answer the challenge. On 06.17.10, the Iron Designer Challenge will feature five teams of NYC professionals partnered with students of The Urban Assembly School of Design and Construction (SDC) facing off in an ultimate design/build competition. Teams will have three hours to construct life-size emergency shelters made from everyday materials in front of a live audience and judges. The event will be hosted by television personality Diana Williams from WABC-TV and include live music by The Roof Walkers, an open bar, food, and city views from an outdoor roof deck. The AIANY Emerging New York Architects Committee (ENYA) is sponsoring the event.
