Smile NEW YORK | Battery Park City Digital Wall Pavillion

Magical Musical Wall Going in at New BPC Rec Center
Monday, July 11, 2011, by Pete Davies

At the north end of Battery Park City down below the new Liberty Twins, where ice rinks and ball fields have been usurped by a couple of acres of raw dirt, a new fun spot is going in: The Digital Wall Pavilion! This 550-foot arc of fritted glass fronting the amenity-filled BPC Community Center, aka the DWiP, is from the creative minds at hanrahan Meyers architects. Aiming for LEED Platinum certification, the design is all about water and sustainability and the idea is made musical by composer Michael Schumacher. A bar code etched into the glass, activated by smart-phoning passers-by, will let them play the wall (here's a prelude). Holy Digitization!
Inside the 55,000 square foot DWiP will be two swimming pools (alternatives to the outdoor pool up on top of Liberty Luxe), plus a big community gymnasium where the gang from Asphalt Green will oversee the athletic action. Also in store are dance studios and a state-of-the-art theater. Outside and overlooking the ball fields will be a 16,000 square foot terrace by SCAPE landscape architects, where a green roof will go in and water will rule via various design motifs, all illuminated by the team at Tillotson Design Associates. That wide open space could be the perfect spot for chowing down on take out from the new Shake Shack once the community center opens late this year.
