IFCCA Prize Competition for the Design of Cities, Eisenman Architects

Yet another unrealized design is the winning entry by Eisenman Architects in the IFCCA (International Foundation for the Canadian Center for Architecture) Prize Competition for the Design of Cities in 1999. Peter Eisenman has long been the most intellectual American architect and this design for the exposed railyards that lead into Penn Station just to the south of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center is more appropriate than ever now that the city’s proposal for a stadium for the New York Jets football team on the waterfront part of this site has been abandoned. The plan combined a stadium, an expansion of the convention center, parks and many other uses and both stretched out into the river and thematically brought the river into the city by means of its smooth and undulating design.
