In the heart of New York City lies a masterpiece of intentional design – Central Park. Joining Architect Michael Wyetzner from Michielli + Wyetzner Architects, we embark on an enlightening walking tour, delving into the meticulous choices that have shaped every corner of this iconic urban oasis.
Contrary to the notion that nature played the primary role, Central Park’s every feature is a deliberate outcome of considered decisions.

Michael Wyetzner guides us through the park’s hidden through-roads, revealing the purpose behind every pathway. From serene bodies of water to strategically placed landmarks, each element serves a distinct role in creating an immersive and tranquil experience for park-goers.
Join us on this journey as Michael Wyetzner unveils the secrets behind Central Park’s design, showcasing why it stands tall as the epitome of the best-designed city park in the world. Explore the intentional choices that have transformed this green haven into a timeless testament to the power of thoughtful urban planning.
