Ennead is excited to share that we have teamed up with Public Works Partners to join the Local Center and work with Youth Ministries for Peace and Justice, Inc. (YMPJ) on activating the future site of the Soundview Economic Hub.
Youth Ministries for Peace and Justice (YMPJ) in collaboration with Ennead Lab and Public Works Partners will activate the future site of the Soundview Economic Hub — a currently vacant space underneath the Bruckner Expressway — with temporary art installations that honor the history of self-determination in the Bronx. The project team includes Nick Hornig, Masha Konopleva, Ayumi Sugiyama, Adam Mead, and Malachi Pursley from Ennead.
Urban Design Forum has recruited five Local Center project teams consisting of 30+ designers, artists, and planners who will support their neighborhood partners to reclaim public spaces to reflect the diverse experiences of their neighborhoods. The teams represent a dynamic line-up of interdisciplinary talent from several corners of Urban Design Forum and Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD)'s combined networks. They were selected by neighborhood partners from a robust pool of interest.
Meet the teams, learn about their five projects, and read reflections on the process here.
