Join Harlem-based landscape architect Elizabeth Kennedy as she presents her work on the Brooklyn Grange farm, a massive 65,000 sq ft roof towering eleven stories over the East River, atop Building no. 3 at the historic Brooklyn Navy Yard. Constructed as a Stormwater Management Tool funded by a NYC DEP Green Infrastructure Grant under PlaNYC, the project serves as an inspiring model of green roof possibilities.

About the Harlem Focus series:
John Reddick, architectural consultant and Harlem historian, curates and leads a series of talks featuring designers, architects, and artists whose work engages and affects the local community. The Harlem Focus series highlights design issues in Harlem, ranging from public art and landscape architecture, to rooftop farms and urban woodland restoration, and explores how design affects this unique neighborhood as it continues to evolve, change, and inspire.



This event is free for Cooper-Hewitt Members and students!
