HUDSON PARK AND BOULEVARD
New York, NY (2010–ongoing)
Hudson Park and Boulevard is the centerpiece of a new neighborhood for midtown Manhattan’s far west side. In approaching the design of this new public space, MVVA sought to provide the kind of daily-use city/park interface seen in some of New York City’s most successful urban spaces, including: seating, tall trees, open lawns, planted borders, play space, public art, and fountains, making the park a comfortable, welcoming, and heterogeneous urban destination.

A curvilinear arrangement of paths, benches, and planted areas makes for a highly active circulation network that meanders through the space, increasing the sense that the park is a refuge from the city’s strictly rational ordering of sidewalks, streets, and architecture.
