Smith-Miller + Hawkinson Architects

Smith-Miller + Hawkinson Architects Architect Laurie Hawkinson said: “Tomorrow’s New York will be shaped by a new attitude towards its natural and constructed landscapes. Our design for a sustainable Olympic Village will be the first large-scale project in this fundamental shift and is based on six simple ideas: First, the production of a new park - the Olympic Green; second, an Olympic ring around the Village for public access to a waterfront park; third, five slender river towers where athletes and residents live with panoramic views; fourth, new super-blocks with courtyards for Olympic events, athletes’ recreation and year-round use by residents; fifth, a new transit hub where the Long Island Railroad meets the river taxi terminal; and sixth, buildings and landscape linked together forming a regenerative system exceeding existing standards for sustainability and energy utilization”Courtesy: NYC2012
