This installation at Rockefeller Center explores the restorative powers of nature in one of the country’s most prominent urban spaces. Drawing upon the context of this national landmark and the changing seasons, the garden reconnects the man-made world with the fundamental elements of nature. Grasses were selected for their autumn appeal, and their color, scale, and texture complement the surrounding limestone buildings. Multi-stem small trees frame views both intimate and grand while the central focus of planting is a large rectangular bed of changing seasonal color. Together with the careful placement of planters and benches, the design turns a busy promenade in midtown Manhattan into a series of restful garden nooks offering quiet places for conversation or reflection.
