One of the most revered concert halls in the world, Carnegie Hall has been a cultural landmark in New York City for well over a century. In order to modernize its facilities and expand its public education program, the institution has renovated the two studio towers above the auditoriums. The renovation has created an opportunity for a rooftop garden and event space above the hall. Several hundred people can be accommodated in this vertically verdant landscape. The garden, along with stormwater systems that capture rainwater for irrigation and reflective pavement to minimize the heat island effect, will contribute to the goal of LEED-certification for the building.
