Event Details

Join landscape architect Elizabeth Kennedy as she presents her work on the Brooklyn Grange farm, located on 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, will curate and lead a series of talks featuring designers, architects, and artists whose work engages and affects the local community. The Harlem Focus series will highlight design issues in Harlem, ranging from public art and landscape architecture, to rooftop farms and urban woodland restoration, and explore how design will affect this unique neighborhood as it continues to evolve, change, and inspire.

 

 

The Harlem Focus series is made possible through the generous support of Target target
