Pier One, the first completed section of Brooklyn Bridge Park, has already revitalized the formerly abandoned industrial site. Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates incorporated seating, views, pathways, and event spaces into new topography constructed on a 9.5-acre landfill pier. Additions of a sculptural rip-rap ramp and kayak launch take advantage of the site’s waterfront location. Photo courtesy of Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates.
