BEN VAN BERKEL / UNSTUDIO’S NEW AMSTERDAM PLEIN & PAVILION OPENS TO THE PUBLIC

AT PETER MINUIT PLAZA AT THE BATTERY IN NEW YORK, BRINGING A NEW

ARCHITECTURAL LANDMARK TO LOWER MANHATTAN

Gift from the Kingdom of the Netherlands to New York City

On May 12th, 2011, the official opening of the Peter Minuit Plaza and the dedication of the New

Amsterdam Plein & Pavilion took place in Battery Park, New York. The ceremony was held at

10:30AM (EST) in Peter Minuit Plaza, and was attended by American and Dutch dignitaries, civic

and business leaders, and key representatives of New York City’s cultural and arts community.

Commissioned by The Battery Conservancy and developed in collaboration with the Parks

Department and Department of Transportation, the New Amsterdam Plein & Pavilion was made

possible by a generous $2.3 million gift from the Kingdom of the Netherlands to New York City, in

honor of four centuries of friendship and a mutual passion for the values of innovation and

creativity, diversity and openness, entrepreneurship and progress. The site will be New York

City’s first true 21st century intermodal transportation hub – where bicycles, buses, the subway

and water transportation intersect with cultural offerings in a singular expression of daring but

lyrical design – and will convert an intersection traveled by more than 150,000 residents and

visitors daily into Lower Manhattan’s newest and most dynamic destination for cultural activity,

entertainment, and enjoyment.

The Plein & Pavilion project was conceived by the Battery Conservancy to create an

extraordinary ‘outdoor living room’ for spontaneous and scheduled activities, public markets,

seating and shade, and a gleaming white, state-of-the-art pavilion for visitor information and

delicious locally grown gourmet food. Designed by UNStudio in collaboration with Handel

Architects LLP, New York serving as associate architect. The project’s landscape was conceived

by Parks Dept. Landscape Designer Gail Wittwer-Laird.

Where History Meets the Future

UNStudio’s design for New Amsterdam Plein & Pavilion creates a 5,000 square-foot, carefully

programmed space located within Peter Minuit Plaza, housing regional organic food by Merchants

Market, as well as the Alliance for Downtown New York’s Visitor Information Booth. This highly

sculptural pavilion stands as a gateway to the Battery’s park and waterfront, with an expressive,

undulating roofline and curving walls; a compact little building with the authority of a

major landmark, evoking a flower opening to its surroundings.

Every night at 12:00AM midnight, the New Amsterdam Pavilion will glow with an array of colors in

tribute to Peter Minuit whose name translates to ‘midnight.’ 1626 consolidated the early

settlements at the tip of Manhattan: a grouping that came to be known as New Amsterdam. This

destination is, in the words of architect Ben van Berkel, “the ideal site for a permanent

commemoration of 400 years of Dutch history in New York, because it is steeped in a sense of a

shared past and looks directly toward the harbor where Henry Hudson sailed, but is also entirely

focused on the future by virtue of its role as a modern transportation hub within the constantly

changing scene of Lower Manhattan. This is a site where history meets the future.”

Warrie Price of The Battery Conservancy said, “The Netherlands is a country that sets global

standards for how cities and countries can regenerate themselves through the professional

strength of innovative and talented designers, and through the force and beauty of the natural

world. The Battery, where New York City was born, began its own revitalization with the work of

famed Dutch garden designer Piet Oudolf, who created with us the largest perennial gardens in

North America, free and open to the public. With the New Amsterdam Plein & Pavilion, we are

delighted to continue our mission of design excellence, privileged to expand our connection to the

great tradition of Dutch design, and honored to bring to New Yorkers and guests from around the

world the joy of nature, the pleasure in community and the value of great modern architecture.”

About Peter Minuit Plaza

Home to the New Amsterdam Plein & Pavilion, the new Peter Minuit Plaza recalls the city’s earliest

days as Nieuw Amsterdam, while heralding the future with cutting-edge architecture, modern

amenities and 21st Century technology. This rare park/transit meeting ground defines a new era

in public space design and construction. Designed by Gail Wittwer-Laird of NYC Parks, the plaza

weaves together trees, gardens, art, food and information with ferries, subways, buses, bikes and

pedestrians. It also demonstrates the commitment of the City, State and Federal governments,

and a partnering Conservancy in creating a unique standard-setting park.

About The Battery and The Battery Conservancy

The Battery is a 25-acre waterfront park and the cradle of New York City history. Located at the

tip of Manhattan overlooking New York Harbor, The Battery hosted Dutch settlers when they

arrived at Manhattan Island in 1626 and established New Amsterdam.

Today with the leadership of The Battery Conservancy, a nonprofit organization established in

1994 to partner with government to design and rebuild these historic acres, the park is the

largest and most dynamic public place in Lower Manhattan. It is the front lawn of Downtown and a

hub of harbor access and cultural tourism. Over five million people, including residents, office

workers, school groups, and tourists from around the world, visit the park and its major landmark,

Castle Clinton National Monument, every year.

The Battery Conservancy, with its partners at the city, state and federal levels, has raised over

$116M to revitalize the park.
