Reimagining Penn Station

By James Gilbert Keawe Ramil

Abstract

Welcome to New York City! Penn Station serves as a primary gateway into the city for over one-hundred million people every year although the experience is less than ideal. The user faces an underground labyrinth with no connection to the city, light or air while the land above only utilizes about one-third of the maximum FAR thereby limiting its value. Through the lenses of clarity, movement, and identity, this thesis explores how to reimagine Penn Station
