The Veloaquadrome is 495 feet long and 264 feet wide, half the size of a Manhattan block, and floats on two container vessels and a floatation disk. Its primary elements are an Olympic-size velodrome—an arena for track cycling—and an interior pool with a multifunctional island; it also incorporates an event and performance space as well as a heliport and jet-pack station. The Veloaquadrome is nomadic, moving along the blue network to connect with already existing neighborhoods and to help produce new ones.
The project was originally published in By the City / For the City: An Atlas of Possibility for the Future of New York (edited by Anne Guiney and Brendan Crain, with a foreword by Michael Sorkin). During URBAN DESIGN WEEK 2011, the project was also presented at the BMW GUGGENHEIM LAB in New York City.
