Williamsburg’s new Domino Park delivers one of the most striking and innovative playgrounds in New York City. Designed by renowned artist Mark Reigelman, Domino Park Playground, commonly referred to as Sweetwater, pays homage to the Domino Sugar Factory and the history of the sugar manufacturing with each portion taking children through a fun-filled representation of the sugar refining process. Through their playground journey, young-at-heart playground visitors will climb ramps, clamber through tubes, brave conveyer belts and catapult out slides, all the while taking in the unrivaled views of the historic site, Williamsburg bridge and the Manhattan skyline.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
