Olympic Village Design Page
Through its vision of global unity amidst the highest levels of
human performance, the Olympic Movement is one of the primary institutions
promoting peace, tolerance, and humanitarianism. The Olympic Village
has an important symbolic role to play in public life both during
the Olympic Games and afterwards. This Village will redefine the
heart of the area by instilling values of diversity and cooperation
to engender a sense of optimism, civicmindedness, and civic pride
that will resonate long after the Games are over.
Our design for the Village establishes an iconic landmark and proposes
an innovative vision for a 21st century urban environment that will
redefine contemporary urban living through its commitment to sustainability,
connectivity and interdependence. It is our intent to transform
Hunters Point into a revitalized “new territory” that
will leave an important legacy, or gift, to the city, while also
providing the new generative tissue, or architectural DNA, that
will continue to stimulate and inspire the development of the Queens
With 43 acres of open space reserved for both urban and natural
parkland, this development’s greens will create the largest
urban waterfront park in New York City. By working carefully and
deliberately to sculpt land and building forms into a coherent relationship
with the existing urban fabric and naturally advantageous site conditions,
we will create a vibrant new neighborhood that will become an important
stimulus for creative and optimistic development of the adjacent
urban areas for years to come.
