We’re excited to share more details of our exterior landscape design for the 550 Madison public garden, which officially received final approval from the NYC Planning Commission this week. Increasing the existing public exterior space by 50%,, the design for the garden re-envisions it as a densely-vegetated sensory retreat that is responsive to the changing seasons and provides an open space for the neighborhood to enjoy a respite in the city. The transformation of the public space draws upon its architectural heritage, the activity of the neighborhood, and the natural history of the region, reconnecting 550 Madison into the public realm. As a privately-owned public space (POPS) that invites people to slow down, linger, and connect to one another and their surroundings, 550 Madison’s new garden embraces the powerful contemporary role POPS can play within the context of New York’s ever-changing urban fabric.

not widely publicized, it's an intelligent and sensitive intervention in the NY urban realm, which will tranform a failing postmodernist Philip Johnson's feature.👏
Lovely how thoughtful and innovative Snøhetta can be with such a limited space. Leading the way with more intelligently designed space
Wonderful idea. Cities need to evolve. And this kind of design is a great example.
Love this! So exciting!!
