Train Terraces: Incubating Urbanism in Westbury — Presentation by Architects David J. Lewis and Marc Tsurumaki

Paul Lewis, Marc Tsurumaki, and David J. Lewis, founding principals of LTL Architects, designed the Train Terraces proposal for the Long Island Index’s ParkingPLUS Design Challenge. In the Village of Westbury, on two lots flanking the elevated train station platform, the architects propose urban incubators for sustainable architecture in the form of elegantly designed, mixed-use, infill projects with multiple terraces that bridge over, under, and along the tracks, continuing their award-winning design investigations into New Suburbanism. David J. Lewis and Marc Tsurumaki unveiled their firm’s design on January 16, 2014.
