Audi Urban Future: Projekt New York

2011-05-16

At the Festival of Ideas for the New City, which the New Museum in New York is holding from 4 to 8 May, Audi is bringing together architects, designers, artists and researchers to visualize ideas about the future of New York. Following the Audi Urban Future Award 2010 in Venice, this is the second venue of the Initiative. A model of Manhattan in 2030 on a scale of 1:1200 will be created through the collaboration of the Audi Urban Future Initiative and the architecture community Architizer. The so-called Audi Urban Future: Project New York will be presented in the Openhouse Gallery in New York from 7 to 9 May. Based on the visions of the architects involved in the Audi Urban Future Award 2010, five up-and-coming New York architecture practices will design the Manhattan of the future. Each team will devote its attention to one district of the city, for example Lower Manhattan, Central Park West or Midtown East.

Abruzzo Bodziak Architects plan to allow buildings in New York to get higher by 2030 – because of the lack of space – and so create as much surface area as possible for solar generators and thus a decentralized energy system.

LEONG LEONG want to bring nature back into the city and allow a natural balance to arise. This is made possible by gigantic net structures, which are suspended between the buildings and greened. By this means fauna can spread out across the city unimpeded.

Matter Practice apply the idea to Washington Heights, specifically the twelve-lane Trans-Manhattan Expressway, a tunnel in the heart of Manhattan that is completely overloaded (Washington Heights). Their idea is to break open the tunnel, slow down the traffic and create urban spaces. The flow of traffic will become part of city life: Cafés, room for pedestrians and new shops can come into existence.
