Next generation parks, like the High Line here in New York and Zollverein in Essen, Germany, have proven the value of preservation and spurred us to redefine our conception of the 21st century park. Maker Park is envisioned as a new adaptive reuse public space that captures the creative ethos of the surrounding Williamsburg neighborhood, an area in the throes of accelerated change. Set on the site of Charles Pratt’s historic Astral Oil Works along the waterfront, Maker Park will pay homage to the area’s long legacy of manufacturing and help to preserve the neighborhood’s culture of collaboration and making that is so central to its character.
