Last Call

One of the chapters in my Guide to Contemporary New York City Architecture, to be released by W. W. Norton next year, highlights projects that are under construction or in planning, ones that should be realized in the second decade of the 21st century, an extension of the featured projects completed in the first decade. Like my research for the latter, I'm once again asking you, dear readers for help in finding projects for this "On the Horizon" chapter.


So here are some criteria for inclusion in that chapter:
  • It is intended to be built, not hypothetical;
  • It is public or has a public presence, meaning no private interiors
  • It is permanent, so no temporary installations or restaurant/retail interiors, which have a way of being temporary even when they're intended to be permanent;
  • It can be a landscape, not just a building;
  • Ideally the project has a rendering or other illustration representing it, one that can be published.
If you know of projects that I should consider please e-mail me with, at the very least, the name of the project and its architect. I have a fairly long list already with what one would expect in this sort of chapter (World Trade Center, Atlantic Yards, Fresh Kills Park, etc.), as well as others not so well known, but the nature of the architectural process means it's much harder to know about projects in these early stages than after they've been under construction for months or years. Hence my last call for help. Thank you.
