Queens Winner: “Pavilion Park” by Cesar Juarez and Alida Rose Delaney

NY State Pavilion-Ideas Competition-National Trust for Historic Preservation-Queens-Pavilion Park--NYC-2

Pavilion Park is a project designed by Queens residents Cesar Juarez and Alida Rose Delaney, using technology as a starting point for new design. They write that “in today’s technologically-driven culture, people seek environments that are communal, flexible and personal.” They want the New York State Pavilion to be a place that New Yorkers “can call their own.” To do this, they propose the removal of the existing walls to open up the space, bringing greenery in through angled levels that can accommodate different types of activities and a center stage area.. A mural wall would be added to feature new artists
