Heatherwick Studio has designed Little Island in New York City, USA.
This project is a new public park that shelters three new performance venues along the Hudson River.
Heatherwick Studio built the 2.4-acre park in collaboration with New York-based landscape architects, MNLA and global engineering firm, Arup.
Designed as a haven for the people and wildlife of New York, it's a real green oasis, held above the water by sculptural planters in the form of "modular petals".
Little Island is located just a short walk across a gangplank from Manhattan’s Lower West Side where visitors will walk past over 100 tree species planted throughout the park.
