The Museum of Modern Art Roof Garden, New York

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)
