Case Description

Domino’s Park in Brooklyn, New York City, has painted a range of circles on its lawns to visually indicate where it safe to settle down and enjoy each others’ company during a period of pandemics. This simple solution, designed by landscape architecture firm James Corner Field Operations, addresses the challenge of limited and unsafe park visiting practices, while allowing residents to enjoy open-air activities again in groups.

Relation to Resilience

The circles of Domino’s park open the door for encounters in times of pandemic between residents with the potential to connect them and build a stronger community.
