These Designers Just Created a Revolutionary Central Park Design

The concrete jungle gets 1000-foot-reflective-walls.

Sun Yitan and Wu Jianshi proposed 1,000-foot-walls around Central Park for eVolo‘s 2016 Skyscraper Competition. Their “hybrid multi-functional mega structure” will turn one square miles of green into seven. The proposed design looks not to the traditional large-scale skyscrapers concept of building up, but digs down to the bedrock. Habitable space instantly created. The 1,000-foot-tall, 100-foot deep phenomenon could be just the green the concrete jungle demands.

“This creates a new urban condition, where landscape can serve as an inherent part of the city,” said Sun Yitan and Wu Jianshi. “With its highly reflective glass cover on all sides, the landscape inside the new park can reach beyond physical boundaries, creating an illusion of infinity. In the heart of New York City, a New Horizon is born.”
