STUDIO PROJECT  spring 209| bloom NYC
Partner: Kristen Smith

 A botanical garden in the meat packing district of New York City. Situated by the termination of the recent high line park the project juxtaposes this elevated landscape with structure that adjusts in scale and
density along the length of the site, responding to the biome held with in. Color treatment of the structure reinforces the gradation of the biome by emphasizing the colors within the species of plants on display
through contrast and correlation. The result is an infrastructure that is responsive to the needs of plants from the different biome by mitigating light and water in such a way that reinforces the climatic impact on
the morphology of plant life.
