Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant
The design and planning framework for Newtown Creek employs a “kit-of-parts”: structures and systems consisting of durable and corrosion-resistant materials – including stainless steel, glazed ceramic tile, glazed brick, and glass – are keyed by color, form, and material to organize the plant both visually and functionally. Flexibility for new and developing technologies are integral to the approach. Eight iconic futuristic, stainless steel-clad “digester eggs” are visible from vantage points across multiple boroughs and act as a symbol of civic service for travelers on several of the city’s highways and bridges.
