Surf Avenue Pedestrian Bridge
As the firm's website states:
Our recent work for the New York City Department of Design and Construction on a new pedestrian bridge spanning Surf Avenue at West 8th Street has given us a chance to familiarize ourselves with the newly imagined future of Coney Island and with the Aquarium and its ambitious plans. Our bridge design, which has received committee-level preliminary approval from the Art Commission, is based on the idea that the Aquarium is the critical anchor for one end of the world-famous Coney Island entertainment district. We therefore designed a new parabolic bridge that launches itself across Surf Avenue - connecting the new West 8/Aquarium BMT station to the Aquarium but also providing a formal and iconic marker for the presence of the Aquarium and one end of Coney Island.
As the firm also indicates, the project is ongoing. Weisz + yoes are also working with the city to build a 'Sea Life' carousel and ocean themed park with 'rides' at Battery Park in Manhattan.
