Parsons Design Workshop, NYC Parks and the High Bridge Coalition have set in motion an exciting plan to renew the 1935 Highbridge Pool and Play Center!
At present, the pool’s layout is limited: in-demand recreational programs must close yearly to allot space for pool-goers. Our proposed outdoor pavilion provides new changing and locker areas on the pool deck and uses natural systems of light, air and water to make a porous and efficient structure, which allows for continuous indoor recreation.
Given a rare opportunity as graduate architecture students to design a project from concept to construction and work with various city entities, we’re excited to physically realize this project. We hope for an extensive positive impact on community and education.
