Crain’s New York asked several architects and other public figures to share their thoughts about how to make NYC “better, smarter stronger, wealthier and maybe, just maybe, a little friendlier.” Contributors include Paul Katz, FAIA, president, Kohn Pedersen Fox; Stanton Eckstut, FAIA, founding principal, Ehrenkrantz Eckstut & Kuhn; Dan Kaplan, AIA, and Mark Strauss, FAIA, senior partners, FXFOWLE Architects; and Richard Olcott, FAIA, partner, Ennead Architects (formerly Polshek Partnership Architects). Suggestions range from far-out (building a posh gambling resort on Governors Island) to modest (adding ferry stops for commuters from nearby communities). View all of these visionary ideas in a slide show essay format.
