Check out the new article in Curbed New York on the visionary master plan for the Brooklyn Navy Yards, led by WXY. ORG contributed to the plan through the conceptualization of architectural principles for contemporary ‘urban vertical manufacturing’.

“This is not a ‘dream small dreams’ master plan,” says David Ehrenberg, president and CEO of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation (BNYDC), the not-for-profit company that manages the 300-acre industrial site. “We are becoming a central business district in our own right and wanted to create a moment where we had a unifying theory on how we were doing wayfinding and lighting and all kinds of cityscape and city development [initiatives] we’ve never done before.”
