This past Wednesday, August 31st, we heard some very exciting updates from a few of Architecture for Humanity's very own.
Preeti Sodhi, Design Fellow with Architecture for Humanity, started things off at our Design Open Mic session with an update about the improvements being made to the Manhattan Bridge Skatepark.
The Manhattan Bridge Skatepark is one of the most popular skate spots in New York City, if not the world; however, it is in desperate need of a redesign and reconstruction. Located within a diverse community at the intersection of Chinatown and the Lower East Side, the skatepark provides a much needed place for recreation in a neighborhood with little green or open space.
