There’s a solid interview with Adriaan Geuze over at Design Observer on the West 8 master plan for Governors Island in New York:
You need to work from your own experience, your inner resources — the ideas and values that you build up over a lifetime. But it is not so easy to talk about these things.
Clearly, he’d rather demonstrate than discuss.
For more details go the Governors Island Park & Public Space website which outlines the design principles. Or have a look below at the wacky montage/renders by West 8 of ‘people enjoying the outdoors’ at the new park.
