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

Washington Square Mews is one of those rare spaces in New York that charms every passerby with its quaint character and old-world scale. As part of NYU's building conversions on the Mews, MNLA's contribution restores the palimpsest of historic paving while achieving universal accessibility. To comply with the highest standards for a landmark restoration, MNLA's documentation graphically describes each era of paving for accurate reinstallation and the integration of contemporary materials.

 Before NYU assumed occupancy of most of the homes on Washington Square's north side in the 1950s, their private stables were remodeled as artist studios for Paul Manship, Gaston Lachaise, and Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney.
