Manhattan based Studio for Civil Architecture has designed an enclosure for the BQE cantilever beneath the Promenade, which is scheduled for refurbishing in the next decade. If this proposal is implemented, according to the Studio, it will serve the purpose of muffling sound from the Expressway, and thereby eliminate the need for the earthen berm proposed to be raised between Brooklyn Bridge Park and Furman Street. Check out the Studio’s e-booklet on the proposal here [via Brownstoner].
