studio a+i, international competition to design AIDS Memorial Park, West Village, trellis, landscaping, green solutions, parks and gardens [1]

While their original concept was denied by community members, Studio a+i [2] has gone back to the drawing board to create a spectacular new design for the AIDS Memorial Park [3] in Manhattan’s West Village.  Their second shot, a triangular trellis planted with vines, which would cover the 1,600 square foot plot, is being applauded as a “quiet, abstract” concept that “celebrates life and growth.” The original design “Infinite Forest [4]” was a fenced-in concept filled with looking glasses, which posed not only safety concerns, but was also thought to be too focused on tragedy and loss of life, rather than future advances and positivity.
