FDR Four Freedoms Park – Urban Design Meritt Award Winner! 2013 AIA New York Design Awards
CORE Systems is proud to be a part of this award winning project. Using our new Solepave system, 22,000 square feet of surface is part of the ‘walk’ to FDR’s bust on this beautifully Louis Kahn designed project. The project was completed in September of 2012, with the Open House event occurring in late October. Within 1 week of attending this event, Hurricane Sandy made an appearance. The entire park withstood Sandy’s appearance beautifully.
The Solepave system is located around all of the trees (see photo) and is wheel-chair accessible, 100% porous, aesthetically pleasing with excellent acoustic damping properties.
