Q: In the city where imagination never sleeps, we asked designers, "If you could create anything for New York, what would it be?"
"A redesigned Cloud Club at the top of the Chrysler Building." —Harry Heissmann
"Zoning guidelines that give an elevated acre back when private developers take an acre at ground level— imagine a green landscape across the roofs of the city. —Caleb Mulvena of Studio Mapos
"A fabulous exhibition building, like the Grand Palais in Paris, exactly where the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center is." —Philip Gorrivan of Philip Gorrivan Design
"One clean, contemporary 'phrase' spoken from neighborhood to neighborhood by lampposts, traffic lights, trash bins, etc." —Jeff Miller of Jeff Miller Design
"An entire building wrapped in my wallpaper, top to bottom, with each side showing a different color of the same pattern." —Given Campbell
