New York Botanical Garden Leon Levy Visitor Center
The completed New York Botanical Garden Visitor’s Center is a stunning addition to one of New York City’s great cultural landmarks. The new Visitor’s Center, with construction completed by E.W. Howell, acts as a grand entrance to the Botanical Gardens, and provides an entry loggia, café building, retail space, as well as restrooms. The design of the three one-story buildings offers an area of 20,700 square feet. These structures provide a simple but bold effect: arched glu-lam wood beams follow the contours of the clamshell roofs, supported by exposed vertical structural steel members.
