Scope and Content

The Twin Parks, Bronx, New York, N.Y. (1967) project series documents the participation of Giovanni Pasanella in the development and execution of housing projects in the Twin Parks West and Twin Parks East areas of the Bronx. In 1967, Giovanni Pasanella collaborated with Jonathan Barnett, Jaquelin Robertson, Richard Weinstein and Myles Weintraub on the "Twin Parks Study". The researchers identified underused sites that could be developed and buildings that could be rehabilitated in the East Tremont area. A plan focussing on two areas--Twin Parks West and Twin Parks East--was developed in collobaration with a group of local religious organizations called the Twin Parks Association. Between 1970 and 1973 a number of sites in the Twin Parks area were developed by different government agencies and designed by different architects. Giovanni Pasanella was selected to design Sites 8, 5-7, 10-12 and 6 in Twin Parks West for the New York State Urban Development Corporation (UDC). He was also chosen to design housing for Site 1-2 of Twin Parks West for the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA), and he was selected as architect for Twin Parks East--a project composed of housing and a school--developed by the New York City Educational Construction Fund. The project series is arranged in four subseries. The documents related to the Twin Parks Study constitute the first subseries. A second subseries is related to the drawings for the built works in Twin Parks West that were designed for the UDC. Drawings for the apartment building designed for the NYCHA constitute the third subseries and the drawings for Twin Parks East constitute the fourth subseries.
