Groen Hoek Community Boathouse and Park - Brooklyn, NY

The East River Community Boathouse Competition addressed an engaged interest in the community of Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Initiated by the AIA NY Chapter - Emerging New York Architects, and in cooperation with the East River Kayak Club and the East River Apprenticeshop, the competition coincided with official planning and zoning announcements for varied land uses at the river edge. In an effort to re-envision the urban edge, meaningful open spaces and amenities are promoted in this design along the Greenpoint and Williamsburg East River Waterfront, engaging at the grass roots level.
