Water SpArrows by Mitchell Bush
What if the rivers surrounding Manhattan could be used as potential public space? GSAPP student Mitchell Bush’s Water SpArrows turns the Hudson River into a recreational park by bombing it with arrows. These arrows are in fact leisure platforms that function as spaces for recreational water sports or just lounging around. The glowing air ballasts, or “arrowheads”, will make them an instantly recognizable symbol on the waterfront and attract city-dwellers.
