Imagine standing on the edge of New York’s Central Park and looking down into a 1.3-sq mile (3.4-sq km) sunken expanse of mountains and lakes. This is the award-winning concept dreamt up by Yitan Sun and Jianshi Wu, who have envisioned digging down to the bedrock of the park to create a more natural landscape.
New York Horizon was conceived to contrast the city’s densely-constructed buildings and towering skyscrapers, as well as to provide New Yorkers with a natural environment that they could enjoy on a daily basis. The reimagined parkland would allow for hiking, climbing and other outdoor activities.
Sun and Wu’s concept imagines the park contained within a huge perimeter of internally reflective glass, a mirrored megastructure itself like the skyscrapers around it. Indeed, it is this aspect of the design that qualified it – and ultimately allowed it to win – the 2016 eVolo Skyscraper Competition.
