Description
A student assignment by Parsons School of Design Environmental Design alumnus Anthony Pellino. This first-year assignment was to select a challenging public site in Manhattan and design a solution to improve the space. Pellino chose a small site in a part of Greenwich Village that had very little park space. The side wall of a townhouse adjacent to the site faced Seventh Avenue and acted as a billboard. Pellino's solution to the assignment was to create a small garden memorial to the many Village residents who were ill or were dying of AIDS. The looming wall provided a map to help visitors find their way through the Village's tangle of streets.
