Governors Island, NY, 2013 | Role: Design-build, Finalist, AIA ENYA “City of Dreams Pavilion” Competition

A finalist for the annual Figment “City of Dreams” pavilion design competition, Urban Accordion dreamed for a flexible city, comprised of four fabric “blocks” that could compress or extend depending on a changing program of events throughout the summer festival.
