Bronx Borough Hall

The Bronx is the only borough without a designated building for a borough hall, as it is currently a tenant within the Bronx County Courthouse. With Bronx County Court being reallocated to a neighboring system, the park begins to intersect the building, stitching the networks of parks and Borough Hall. The new building is imagined to be an extension of the park in its program and governance within the community. The concept of courtyard is questioned as the previously dark light shaft is expanded with an organic and dynamic central cut-out. The existing facade is penetrated, creating a new outdoor commons within the building. Through the redefinition of what was previously court and courtyard, more open public space now exists within those locations, intersecting where Borough Hall meets the community. It is through this that Bronx Borough hall is re-imagined to become a new civic center that takes on the function of the park itself.
