Parkour! Brooklyn, NY By Konyk

"An urban obstacle to overcome is at the heart of the physical skill called “parkour”, an
invention of the Frenchman David Belle. Parkour is an activity with the aim of moving from one point to another as efficiently and quickly as possible. A person who practices parkour is known as a traceur, which translated from French means “to trace, to draw” or “to go fast”. Urbanistically we derived our scheme from the spirit of parkour, in that the constant density of
traffic circulating around Grand Army Plaza is the obstacle we seek to overcome with our design".KONYK
