Mitchell Giurgola is working in collaboration with Susan T. Rodriguez | Architecture • Design and the Central Park Conservancy on the Harlem Meer Center project. Originally constructed in 1966, the Lasker Rink and Pool has become an unsightly barrier at the northern end of Central Park. The Harlem Meer project calls for the transformation of the site into a contemporary recreation facility, seamlessly integrated into the landscape. More than a year of extensive community engagement went into the design of this project. The $150 million dollar project will be the largest project in the Central Park Conservancy’s history and is scheduled to be completed by Spring 2024.
