southpoint

2006

The Southpoint: from Ruin to Rejuvenation was a competition to provide architects and designers with the opportunity to engage in the development of the southern tip of Roosevelt Island. The site, located at the ruin of James Renwick Jr. Smallpox Hospital, provided a platform to discuss issues of preservation, site complexity, and New York?s unique and inimitable physical environment. Inspired by its tradition of being a public gathering space for festivities and art installation, the Universal Arts Center program called for a multi-use facility to accommodate both performing and visual arts.
