Work in Progress: The Design Workshop at Highbridge


January 30, 2014 - February 4, 2014

Arnold and Sheila Aronson Galleries

Opening Reception: Thursday, January 30, 6:00 pm

This exhibition showcases the ongoing efforts to revitalize the Highbridge Pool and Recreation Center in Washington Heights through a multi-year collaboration between the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation and the Parsons Design Workshop. The Design Workshop is a team of architecture students from Parsons School of Design, under faculty supervision, who provide pro bono architectural design and build services to not-for-profit organizations.

Started three years ago, the Highbridge project, an adaptive reuse, was designed and built by students to improve the WPA era facilities and when completed, will be accessible year round, serving an underprivileged community. Featuring photographs, drawings, sketches together with artifacts and material samples, the exhibition displays the various elements and a chronology of this work-in-progress.
