Lincoln Center gets a lawn

New York City has undergone some amazing transformations over the last decade. In addition to the 9/11 Memorial, one of the other most visible projects has probably been the High Line, an elevated public park transformed from an old freight line, from design and architecture firm Diller, Scofidio + Renfro. But another DS+R project is the Hypar Pavilion at Lincoln Center, a free standing structure accommodating a public green space and restaurant all in one... and it's pretty amazing! Green is definitely a great color and contrast to concrete and steel for any city.

via arch daily: The dual requirements of a destination restaurant and a public green space located within the confines of the Plaza are satisfied with a single architectural gesture sited between the reflecting pool and the plaza’s north edge. Elizabeth Diller comments, “Hypar Pavilion’s moment of invention came when we discovered how to design a destination restaurant without consuming public space on the Lincoln Center campus. The roof became a new kind of interface between public and private, with an occupiable twisting grass canopy over a glass pavilion restaurant.”
