The “Green Room” is designed by Casanova+Hernandez as part of a series of temporary interventions in the public space of several European cities named “Domestic Monuments”.
The “Green Room” experiments with the role of hybrid interventions (mix of landscape+architecture+sculpture) to activate the urban life of our city centres.
The intervention transforms an anonymous area of the public space of the city into an open room for the citizens that works as a green island characterized by its domestic character and strong identity.

Five additional acres of Brooklyn Bridge Park have been opened to the public, including the first 2,000 feet of the park’s greenway, a 30-foot wide, scenic bikeway and walkway along the East River shoreline. The first section of the new greenway starts at the park entrance at Old Fulton Street and ends at the foot of Pier 2, approximately 2,000 feet to the south.
When complete, Brooklyn Bridge Park will be a sustainably built and operated 85-acre park stretching 1.3 miles along Brooklyn’s East River edge and will include lawns, active recreation fields and courts, a calm water boating basin for non-motorized craft, restored ecological habitats, playgrounds, and a shared bikeway and walkway.
