ASLA 2015 Professional General Design Award Winners / Giải thưởng ASLA 2015 General Design Award

Sixty miles north of New York City, we’ve transformed a postindustrial site into a popular riverfront park, where art, recreation, and environmental education enable visitors to forge deeper connections with the Hudson River and its history. Originally a wooden pier and basaltic railroad fill on tide flats, but vastly degraded throughout much of the twentieth century, the recuperated property has returned a vital part of Beacon’s waterfront to an active, diverse, and resilient landscape. Three phases of remediation and ecological restoration have been completed, earning a three-star ranking from the Sustainable Sites Initiative.
