Little Island was opened to the public on May 21, 2021. When the idea of Little Island was first floated in 2014, there was no shortage of criticism to go around.The project has been seven years in the making and has overcome multiple lawsuits.Fast-forward to 2021, the park-that-almost-wasn't is perhaps NYC’s most anticipated opening. It is also one of the first new parks to open since the pandemic onset.

Barry Diller,这位传媒大亨和他的妻子 Diane von Furstenberg捐赠超过2.6亿美元,在哈德逊河上建造这处创新的公园,今年将会有约500场活动和表演。

Little Island is a new public park that shelters three new performance venues on the Hudson River. Designed as a haven for people and wildlife, it is a green oasis, held above the water by sculptural planters, and located just a short walk across a gangplank from Manhattan’s Lower West Side.

最初Heatherwick Studio是受慈善家Barry Diller和哈德逊河公园信托基金会的邀请,为曼哈顿西南部的新码头建造一处公共场所。设计团队并没有在哈德逊河公园设计一处装饰建筑,他们看到了一个机会,能重新思考和定义码头。设计的出发点不是结构,而是游客的体验:身处水面上的兴奋感,远离城市、沉浸在绿意中的感觉——灵感来自中央公园,在那里,人会忘记自己正身处美国人口最密集的城市之中。

Heatherwick Studio was initially invited by philanthropist Barry Diller and the Hudson River Park Trust to create a pavilion for a new pier off the south-west of Manhattan. Instead of designing a decorative object to sit in the Hudson River Park, the design team saw an opportunity to rethink what a pier could be. The starting point was not the structure, but the experience for visitors: the excitement of being over the water, the feeling of leaving the city behind and being immersed in greenery – inspired by Central Park, where it’s possible to forget that you are in the midst of the most densely populated city in the United States.

Piers were traditionally flat to allow boats to dock, but did they have to be? In contrast to the flat streets of Manhattan, the design team wanted to create a new topography for the city, which could rise up to shape a variety of spaces.


The first iteration was a curled leaf form floating on the water, its veins rising like ribs at the edges to shelter the space from the wind. The idea of raising the park on its foundations came from the existing wooden piles in the water, remnants of the many piers that used to extend from the shoreline of Manhattan. Beneath the visible tips of the wood, the piles have become an important habitat for marine life and are a protected breeding ground for fish.

Heatherwick Studio设想这是一个具有完整体验性的、凝聚力的单体构筑物,而非将不相关的元素拼凑在一起。任何类型的码头,新的桩柱支撑都是必要的。这些桩柱不再只是用于支撑平台的支柱,而是成为了平台本身——它们延伸至花钵并与之融为一体,共同构成了公园的表面。

Heatherwick Studio envisaged the pier as a complete experience; a single, cohesive object, rather than unrelated elements stuck together. New piles would be necessary to support any type of pier. Instead of sticks holding up a deck, the piles become the deck – they extend into planters that join together to create the park’s surface.

The height of the piles varies to create the park’s contours: the corner of the pier is lifted to allow sunlight to reach the marine habitat, and the edge falls to define hills, viewpoints and to carve out a natural amphitheater for performances. In this way, the pier and its supporting structure are one.

为了确定花钵的形状,设计团队将目光投向了大自然,借鉴了河流结冰时在木桩周边形成的马赛克状的冰块,Heatherwick Studio用镶嵌花样的纹理来重新诠释,这种纹理看似关联,实际是由可以标准化制造的重复元素(单元)组成。

To determine the pots’ form, the design team looked to nature, and the mosaic of ice that forms around the wooden piles when the river freezes. The studio reinterpreted this in a tessellated pattern that appears organic, but uses repeated elements that could be standardised for fabrication.

在小岛最显眼的地方,花钵的安放角度和重复方式都经过了周密的考量。为了让混凝土结构具有顺滑质感,Heatherwick Studio与当地的制造商密切合作。船只将预制构件运输到现场并进行组装,最大限度地减少了对城市的干扰。

Care was taken to vary the angle and repetition of pots at the perimeter, where they were most visible. To give the structural concrete a smooth, tactile quality, Heatherwick Studio worked closely with a local fabricator. The precast components were transported by boats and assembled on site, minimising disruption to the city.

To emphasise the feeling of escape, Little Island’s footprint sits in the middle of the water between piers 54 and 56. Access is via two accessible ‘gangplanks’, and oriented in a continuation of the street grid.

Inside, paths wind through trees and grassy seating areas to hidden, unexpected views. Restoring the entertainment venue that was lost when Pier 54 fell into disrepair, the park integrates three performance spaces. On the furthest edge, sheltered by the hills and surrounding trees, is an acoustically-optimised 700-seat amphitheatre with natural stone seating – its stage is set against the spectacular backdrop of sunset over the Hudson River and views of the Statue of Liberty. To the south is a more intimate, 200-seat spoken word stage. In the centre is a flexible venue with capacity for larger scale events – its hard paving brings to the surface the tessellated pattern of the piles.

There are roughly 400 different species of trees, shrubs, grasses and perennials throughout Little Island and at least 100 different species of trees through the park that are suited to the New York climate.

Each corner of the island represents a different microclimate depending on the topography, sun exposure and wind patterns.

The theatre needed back-of-house spaces, but the design team didn’t want to interrupt the park with a building. The solution came through the structure: the tallest piles transfer the load to lower piles, allowing a void to be created beneath the deck. In this undercroft, the foundations are revealed and a viewing platform is created above the water, allowing a unique perspective of the pier and river, while concealing the facilities on a discreet deck. Every aspect of the experience has been considered, from the way the greenery unfolds on the approach to the view from each theatre seat. With its unique mix of venues and parkland, Little Island is a pause in the pace of Manhattan; a place where New Yorkers and visitors can cross the river to lie under a tree, watch a performance, catch the sunset and feel connected to the water and natural world.
