Visitor Center Design Wins Prestigious Award

July 2009

BBG was recently notified that the design for the new Visitor Center has been selected to receive the prestigious New York City Public Design Commission’s Award for Design Excellence. This wonderful and unexpected recognition is an award shared with the Garden’s talented architects at Weiss/ Manfredi and their engineering and landscape architectural partners. The award will be presented by Mayor Bloomberg on July 1 at the Commission’s annual awards ceremony. The winning projects are selected by the Commission from hundreds of projects reviewed each year, and exemplify the highest standards for design excellence.


Green Facts

The Garden is working to save water, and you can too. The average New York home wastes as much as 11,000 gallons of water each year—that’s 30 gallons a day!
