Public Space, Old San Juan 2013

    • Merit Award-AIA Honor Awards PR Chapter - 2013

    This urban architecture commission in the outskirts of Old San Juan, Puerto Rico, attends a series of pragmatic problems that the Capitol District currently faces: vehicle invasion of pedestrian and building domain; insufficient parking; lack of informal meeting space, public space, and urban furniture; poor visual connections of surrounding bodies of water; unsafe connection between historical buildings; lack of urban presence of a landmark historic building; and poor vehicle and pedestrian connectivity to future and existing San Juan Bay Development efforts; among others.

    The East Connector makes good urban sense, but is particularly notable for its elegant and restrained details.
