The Art of Collaboration: Bringing Landscape Architecture into the Classroom by StudioHIP

From iconic projects that celebrate diversity and generate pronounced community benefits, to sites that integrate resiliency strategies to defend from the impacts of climate change, preserve a historic site’s cultural legacy, or utilize innovative design approaches to resolve singular challenges, this year’s award-winning submissions showcase the full range of the landscape architectural profession. With locations that vary from the urban realm and commercial mixed-use, to suburban residential projects, and sustainable regenerative waterfront programs, this year’s submissions demonstrated the diverse application of the practice and its long-term value to people and the environment we live in.

Domino Park by James Corner Field Operations

2019 Award of Excellence: Domino Park by James Corner Field Operations

Inspired by community input and the site’s rich history, Domino Park reconnects the Williamsburg neighborhood to the East River for the first time in 160 years. The five-acre park offers a range of activities: beach volleyball, a playground, a dog run, a taco stand, water features, lawns and plentiful seating. The park celebrates the history of one of New York’s most iconic industrial waterfront sites by integrating over 30 large-scale salvaged relics, including 21 original columns from the Raw Sugar Warehouse, gantry cranes, screw conveyors and syrup tanks. It functions as a resilient and absorbent sponge and the neighborhood’s first line of defense against super storms. Since its opening, Domino Park has become a magnet, embraced by the diverse community it serves.
