Jennifer, a former Roosevelt Island resident (mid 1970's through mid 1990's) was at the Museum of Modern Art and came across the current exhibition "Dreamland: Architectural Experiments since the 1970s" which included two works focusing on Roosevelt Island and thought we'd all find them interesting. The exhibit runs through March 16, 2009.
Thanks Jennifer !
Jennifer states in her e-mail that:
As you can see from the photos I've attached from the exhibit, these were not examples of actual built projects, but are interesting nonetheless. The first is an overall view of the artist's idea for the area of the island south of the 59th Street bridge. The second photo is a detailed view of his envisioned development. I've also included a photo of the placard detailing information on the designers
