Ring X City
At the termination of Park Avenue in Manhattan, urban highways and empty lots located near Harlem River create a disconnect towards the Bronx. The Harlem River is an isolated zone; the linear gesture no longer works as an effective connection but rather than functions as a border. This project proposes a “Ring” to surround this urban area. This circular passage collects urban fragments and supports an infinite passage along a loop. It touches the ground on multiple points in different cultural districts, promoting interaction across these regions. The bridge features an infinite jogging path with six program zones to support a restaurant, library, temporary house, park, and study center. Moreover, the circle addresses flooding along Harlem Riverside by functioning as a safety zone in the event of high flood levels.
