Description
the competition is for the integrated design of an innovative music venue in the east river state park located in williamsburg BROOKLYN. the new park is the site of the ‘JELLY Pool Parties’ summer concert series which brings 6,000 fans to the site on sunday afternoons to enjoy free performances by progressive independent artists. suckerPUNCH challenges designers to develop a network of stages and facilities which can accommodate and enhance these performances through a progressive design strategy. as the epicenter of cutting edge music, art, and fashion in brooklyn, williamsburg demands an architectural intervention that integrates the most contemporary of design ideas, techniques and processes. the stages and facilities should be designed as a differentiated system where unique moments can emerge from a cohesive environment within the park. the stages can be permanent structures or they can be transformative and adapt in order to accommodate the infinite possible future scenarios for the site and its incarnations in the off season. the organizers are proposing such future functions as the performances of opera, classical, and pop music as well as movie screenings and outdoor markets. designs should consider atmospheric conditions such as lighting and water as well as performative shading features as these performances will be held in the heat of the summer and span from the afternoon into the night.
