Ennead Lab and Public Works Partners join the Local Center to Activate Future Site of the Soundview Economic Hub

Youth Ministries for Peace and Justice (YMPJ) in collaboration with Ennead Lab and Public Works Partners will activate the future site of the Soundview Economic Hub — a currently vacant space underneath the Bruckner Expressway — with temporary art installations that honor the history of self-determination in the Bronx. The project team includes Nick Hornig, Masha Konopleva, Ayumi Sugiyama, and Malachi Pursley from Ennead.

Ennead Lab, the research and development arm of Ennead Architects, together with the urban planning and consulting firm Public Works Partners, have combined their shared passion for community-led design with their expertise in architecture, planning, and community engagement. This project is supported by the Local Center, a community design initiative that equips local leaders with the technical assistance, funding, and connections to re-envision public spaces. The Local Center is a collaboration between Urban Design Forum and the Association for Neighborhood and Housing Development.
