2019 Best of Design Award for Urban Design: Brooklyn Army Terminal Public Realm

WXY was commissioned by the New York City Economic Development Corporation to play a role in continuing the legacy of the Brooklyn Army Terminal (BAT) as an engine for industrial innovation and the long-term growth of businesses and quality jobs in New York. BAT’s history of providing industrial jobs informs the campus’s new identity, which embraces a language of logistics. The public realm design opens up the campus to pedestrians, drawing them through the site to the new ferry stop, also designed as part of the project. The open space features connector elements of unearthed cobblestone and pioneer landscape as well as brightly colored signage and striping that codes the space for pedestrians, cars, and trucks.
