Archtober Building of the Day: 103rd Street Community Garden

SCAPE and the New York Restoration Project have created a place of community vitality for the East Harlem neighborhood by transforming and greening a 15,364 square foot open space into a public asset at minimal cost. The site is an exemplar of collaboration and new models for sustainable development, urbanism and community-based change.

The tour will be led by Kate Orff, ASLA, who is a registered landscape architect and the founding principal of SCAPE a landscape architecture and urban design office based in Manhattan. Through her creative leadership of the firm she explores the cultural and physical complexity of urban landscapes and their unique textures, ecologies, programs and publics.
