WASHINGTON SQUARE PARK NEEDS

A RADICALLY NEW WAY TO STRUCTURE AND ORGANIZE THE PROGRAMMING AND CIRCULATION IN AND AROUND THAT REFLECTS THE CURRENT CONDITIONS OF THE SITE NEEDS A NEW IDENTITY, WHILE STILL IDENTIFYING ITSELF WITH THE HISTORY OF THE AREA LACKS A SOLID PHYSICAL CONNECTIONS TO THE REST OF THE SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOOD THE SKYWALK HAS LITTLE TO NO INTERACTION WITH THE PARKAND IT CURRENTLY A DETERMENT TO THE PARK THE VIEW TO THE NORTH IS IMPORTANT AND DESIRABLE WITH THE EXCEPTION THAT IT OVERLOOKS A PARKING LOT THE PARK HAS MANY POSITIVE ASPECTS WHICH SHOULD ONLY BE ALTERED IF IT WILL SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE THE AREA
