The Danish firm BIG of Bjarke Ingels has unveiled its project for a New York Police Department station in the Bronx. In the design, 4,180 square meters are distributed in twelve volumes, each containing a particular part of the brief. These stacked dozen ‘bricks, as Ingels calls them, are organized programmatically around a central atrium. The building thus results from the intersection of blocks clad in concrete, metal, and glass, with setbacks creating entrances at street level. The NYPD project includes two elements atypical of police premises; green roofs which the offices look over, and a ground-floor area for community activities like civic awareness classes.
