Governors island

West 8 as Landscape Architects

West 8’s winning design competition entry for Governors Island’s future open space envisions a robust World Park filled with primal natural elements; a landscape that at once is local, regional, and national in stature—the “Un-Central park”. Its context is not the setting of urbanity, but that of nature, water and ecology. The park will provide places to relax, play sports, discover and explore, amidst the historic monuments shaped by the rich 400-year history of Governors Island and framed by extraordinary views of the Statue of Liberty and the skyline of the City.
