MNLA was commissioned by New York University to undertake landscape enhancements for four signature venues within its urban campus.

This project repurposes vapid plazas associated with a telecommunications switch-gear building into two public spaces for outpatient care for the New York University Langone Medical Center. The change in building use triggered the opportunity to revitalize two Privately Owned Public Space Plazas (POPS) on the north and south sides for the benefit of patients, employees, and the surrounding community.  As outdoor space associated with a place of healing, the biophilic design deploys vegetation in multiple ways, from vertical green screens to vine-covered trellises to elevated terraces and at-grade plantings. Patients and visitors are encouraged to enter from the sidewalk where comfortable seating is abundant.

The public plaza is framed by a trellis, mosaic art wall, and terraced plantings to create a psychological refuge in this outpatient cancer center.
