George & Annette Murphy Center at Asphalt Green, New York, N.Y. (1979)
between 1979 and 1984?
Project series AP154.S1.1979.PR01, George & Annette Murphy Center at Asphalt Green, New York, N.Y. (1979), documents an executed project to recycle a municipal asphalt plant into a youth sports and arts center. Clients for the project were the New York City Department of General Services and the Neighborhood Committee for the Asphalt Green, chaired by Dr. George Murphy. The asphalt plant was a parabolic structure built in the 1940s by the firm Kahn and Jacobs. Pasanella + Klein worked on the adaptive reuse project with HOK, successors to Kahn and Jacobs. The transformed interior includes two gymnasia of different sizes, a running track, art and photography studios, offices, lockers, showers and a theatre. The design includes an on-site total energy plant. The project series consists of presentation drawings.
