In the fall of 2008, the Design Trust and the Grand Army Plaza Coalition mounted a free, large-scale exhibition in the center of Grand Army Plaza that showed 30 visionary plans for the reinvention of this magnificent civic space. This unprecedented exhibit laid the groundwork for a Plaza that will be more beautiful, support a range of public events, and provide safer and easier access for pedestrians, motorists and cyclists alike.
The resulting publication, Reinventing Grand Army Plaza: Visionary Designs for the Heart of Brooklyn, not only showcases these 30 design schemes, but also provides a historical, physical and cultural context for the Plaza, and recommends steps the community can take to achieve the goal of a new master plan and a comprehensive renovation.

This publication was generously supported by the Brooklyn Community Foundation, NYC Dept. of Cultural Affairs, and Transportation Alternatives.
