Starr Whitehouse and Tri-Lox design a park in Long Island City with a playscape influenced by bird’s nests

The park is open for play! Part of a new residential development by the Durst Organization, Queens Plaza Park is a tightly-programmed pocket park built directly over subway lines and adjacent to the LIRR transit hub. Each area of the park is defined by a use and character, fitting together like puzzle pieces to make maximal use of a tight urban footprint.
