The new Pershing Square will be inclusive, democratic and accessible; returned to its historic flatness and continuous with the surrounding sidewalks, accessible from every direction and for everyone, without any stairs or walls.
Pershing Square will be full of shade again; through a tree canopy covering diverse native gardens and a vine-covered canopy covering kiosks for diverse uses. At the center a great lawn welcomes activities of all scales, from a picnic to a concert to a movie.
Agence Ter and Teamâ€™s is the only proposal that includes a monumental public artwork, Liquid Sky by artist Leo Villarreal. Sustainability is inherent to the proposal: water is managed and collected, plant species are drought tolerant, and the smart canopy generates power for the park.
This timeless design, elegant in its simplicity, installs a vibrant, open and dynamic heart in the center of the city.
