Little Island on the Hudson to open Memorial Day Weekend
Designed by Thomas Heatherwick and Mathews Nielsen LA, Little Island at Pier 55 creates an incredible leisure and arts space filled with foliage. The landscape is supported by precast concrete "pots" that taper to piles driven over 100 - 250 feet each.
Working with several types of brass and steel, our team provided structural calculations plus shop and fabrication drawings for Mariani Metal's complex custom metalwork and Situ Studio's organic timber seating. Because of the flowing landscape of the park, we worked with tighter tolerances and provided extra coordination support.
