The dramatic transformation of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts heralds a new era for the cultural complex to attract new audiences for the thirteen music, dance, film, theater, and educational institutions that comprise this iconic mid-century modern complex. MNLA's contribution to the public realm of Lincoln Center encompasses multiple spaces.

The revitalization of West 65th Street replaces a dark service corridor with a vibrant pedestrian streetscape from Broadway to West End Avenue. Transformation of North Plaza offers a two-level restaurant with an undulating green roof. A bosque of trees offers a welcome shaded grove for casual gatherings or performance viewing. The most dramatic change occurs along Columbus Avenue, where vehicles and pedestrians are separated to afford each visitor a gracious, weather-protected approach to the complex. Embankments on either side of the grand stair are thickly planted with a variety of trees and seasonal groundcovers to create an urban forest.

Conceived as a counterpoint to the classical monumentality of the Lincoln Center campus and resembling a parted curtain, the landscape design defines the entry experience of the complex's grand staircase.
