The Elevated Acre at 55 Water Street
The park, built in 2005, sits on top of a parking garage and is sandwiched in between two FiDi office buildings on Water Street. It's not far from the much more famous Battery Park, where tourist ferries depart for the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. The design for this elevated plaza transforms a barren, windswept deck into a vibrant, multi-programmed and accessible public park and ties into the green necklace in lower Manhattan.
TANGLE project was funded by
Grants for Art in Public Space from Lower Manhattan Cultural Council with generous
support of The September 11th Fund.
Tai Dang created a dance theater performance with live music, poetry and transformed this outdoor space to a theatrical landscape
