DWiP (Digital Water i-Pavilion) by hanrahan Meyers architects proposes an interactive surface (edge) where visitors can be at an edge within the city of New York and share an interactive experience. The experience is interactive, both as a live event, as well as through an App, developed as a mirrored experience of the building.
DWiP's 550-foot long etched glass facade interacts with smart devices through an interactive media surface that embraces urban design, and encourages social interactions between participants, at the edge between Battery Park City and the lower west side of Manhattan.

DWiP marks the eastern edge of Battery Park City at the Ballfields. DWiP connects pedestrians within Battery Park City's North Neighborhood to the West Side Highway pedestrian crossing from Battery Park City to the National Sept. 11 Memorial and the World Trade Center site.
DWiP's 550-foot long glass facade is an interactive space of mediated interaction where visitors will be encouraged to post ideas, reactions, and thoughts about New York City, the waterfront, the Irish Hunger Memorial, Poets House, Teardrop Park, and other significant sites in the area. The edge is also interactive through the DWiP App, where visitors will be able to interact with the frit pattern on the building's glass, as well as the Michael Schumacher sound piece, WaTER.
