[COLLAPSING THE EDGE] Governors Island is an edge to hold the object of Manhattan. Hugh Ferris's paintings depict monumental voids and volumes- the visual language of Manhattan. The ferry terminal aims to interrupt this edge.
[DELAMINATION] First iteration involved peeling the edge to present a fork in the road- the original promenade and the new. The Ferry Terminal would sit between these.
[ISLANDS] To allow for more ferry or boat traffitc, the delamination was deleted.
