Storefront for Art and Architecture Competition

What happens when institutions or parts thereof are torn down? How does the public adjust when a park that existed for over a century is destroyed? The New York City Storefront for Art and Architecture asked the question with a competition to explore what happens with the Frick Collection decided to demolition the small garden-park adjacent to the main mansion museum that was clearly visible to the public to make room for new museum structures. Partnering with architect, Christian Bjone, this concept imagined the creation of a vertical garden replicating the layout of the original with the fish pool recreated as a waterfall, thus giving the Frick Collection the room it needed, and giving the public the garden it was use to seeing when passing by.
