PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Named after the architectural focal point of the historic neighborhood, the Flatiron Institute is dedicated to being thought leaders in the fields of mathematics, astrophysics and biochemistry. The garden expands the Center’s world-class programs into a vibrant landscape, positioning nature as an essential partner in interdisciplinary discussions.

The creative professionals can be found engaging in interdisciplinary dialogue and problem solving on the tiered amphitheater seating. The multi layered elevations of benches and stadium-style seating encourage unexpected gatherings. The outdoor learning rooms feature chalkboards and areas for stargazing. The greenroof plantings combat urban heat island effect, while absorbing storm water. The Flatiron Institute’s rooftop garden and interior plantings are a thorough integration of the natural world and the office environment.
