Essex Carve

Essex Carve

Essex Crossing, New York City

I designed a market place, residential block, and an Andy Warhol museum on two city blocks at Essex Crossing in New York City.
There was so much space on the ground I felt it vital to give most of it to the pedestrian life. I formed a square around the space and then carved away to respond the nearby streets. After that, the upper floors were carved down to create balconies and continue the same language.
