  • 2. Project: “Shining light on history”—Bowling GreenProposals Research to support this design solutionThe overall arching element of focus within the area would include:of Bowling Green is water. Water plays an importantrole in the history of the area and is still in great “The Success of the Highline”importance today. It is also quit evident within the art [http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/06/nyregion/with-and architecture, memorials, landscape, environmental next-phase-ready-area-around-high-line-is-flourishing.impact, users, and transportation within the area. html] The New York Time Article, “The High Line Isn’t Just aAs the city continues to evolve and expand while Sight to See; It’s Also an Economic Dynamo”shifting towards a more sustainable environment, it ishard to imagine not creating a space that is a bit more “Grafik Intervention : Sparking urban revitalization efforts Designers Leeza DiStefano & Lisa Marie Anastasio | Pratt institute | SPecial Projects: Broadway 1000 Steps | Spring ‘12engaging compared to your average focal point of through design.”green space. Taking into consideration the rich historical [http://grafikintervention.com/]content of Bowling Green and its surroundings, wehave decided to create two concepts that inform this “The Atlantic Transport Line”information to the target audience. One concept is to http://www.atlantictransportline.us/content/immc.htmcreate an analog historical timeline of information onthe parks pavement that is primarily typographical. The “NYC Environmental Protection”other concept is to have the same information but not http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&sonecessarily in a linear format as a digital timeline. This urce=web&cd=6&ved=0CE4QFjAF&url=http%3A%2F%2digital interface would be solar powered.  Fwww.nycwatershed.org%2Fwatershed-tours%2FDEP- PES_World_Bank_LAC_20110512.pdf&ei=q7E5T47_OqOne of our proposals is a typographic timeline based H10gGggvXbAg&usg=AFQjCNFsuK4DJ94Pb_on the importance of water within Bowling Green Park. vjIlAXAh0dB9ONwwThe timeline will start at both ends the park opening’sand flow around the fountain back out the other side. “The Expanding Manhattan Coastline”The text consists of multiple paragraphs each explaining http://www.racontrs.com/stories/nyc-land-reclamation/the influence of water within the area. Both historicaland present day information will be included within “Island’s Expanding Shoreline”the timeline. The type will be in various shades of blue http://www.lowermanhattan.info/about/history/did_coinciding with the water theme. The goal is for the you_know/island_s_expanding_shoreline_30110.aspxviewer to also gain insight into the importance andinfluence water had and still has on the area.Another is a solar powered energy display within thesidewalk that people are able to walk on within thepark. The displays will shift with different informationregarding the history, environment, art/architecture,etc. of the neighborhood and Bowling Green Park. Asa result, the community as well as tourists will gainan education on the importance of water within thearea. Lastly, a third proposal is a small, thin outflowof water from the fountain that would stream in bothdirections towards the two gate openings of the park.At various points alongside the stream of water wouldbe a typographic timeline explaining the influence ofwater within the area. Both historical and present dayinformation will be included within the timeline. Thestreams of water will engage the viewer who will thenfollow and read the accompanying text. The goal is forthe viewer to also gain insight into the importance andinfluence water had and still has on the area.
