Whether you’re an architecture buff or just someone who enjoys beautiful green space, it’s hard not to get excited about Louis I. Kahn’s Four Freedoms Park [1], which will be opening soon [1] on Roosevelt Island nearly 40 years after it was designed by the famed architect. The elegant and understated park was conceptualized by Kahn as a tribute to President Franklin D. Roosevelt, for which the entire island is named, and will finally come to fruition [1] in October despite the fact that the design was completed in 1974.
