MoMa Roof Garden is designed by landscape architect Ken Smith.
The new roof garden is on the top of the Taniguchi building.
“…inspiration from Japanese dry Zen gardens with a relatively flat garden of white gravel, recycled black rubber, crushed glass, sculptural stones and artificial boxwood plants. Tan headers fabricated from milled foam and coated with a hardening surface define areas of material and give a crisp definition to the design layout. While rooted in tradition, the design and fabrication is contemporary in spirit and form.” (Ken Smith)
