The public waterfront is reimagined in conjunction with Rockefeller University's new River Campus laboratory building. The 30-foot-wide by 750-foot-long section of the East River Esplanade is redesigned to provide clear pedestrian and cyclist circulation. Planted areas articulate areas of respite that offer a variety of seats and lounges. Plant species appropriate to the esplanade’s harsh microclimate are positioned to provide shade, seasonal diversity, and articulation of spaces.
