NEW YORK (AP).- A design called "Infinite Forest" is being proposed for an AIDS memorial park in Manhattan's Greenwich Village.
The design by a team of architects at Studio a+i features groves of trees and mirrored glass surfaces.
It won a competition held by a group campaigning to place a memorial in a triangle across from the former St. Vincent's Hospital.
The Rudin Management Company, which bought the land after the hospital's bankruptcy, has already received partial city approval to place a park in the space. If the plans are changed substantially, that approval process would have to begin again.
Bill Rudin says the park design on track for approval allows for a commemoration of those impacted by AIDS. He says his company will continue working "with all stakeholders."
