Ford Foundation Atrium

I heard about the lush atrium at the Ford Foundation on Instagram and finally had a chance to check it out. It is a total hidden gem a block away from the United Nations. The garden is home to nearly 40 species of trees, vines, and shrubs. It features a reflecting pool and a reverberating fountain that fills the space with a tranquil sound, a welcomed reprieve from the NYC noise outside. 
The garden sits beneath office windows and I was envious of the folks who get to work with that view each day! The garden was also designed to be an inclusive space. It features a sensory section that enables people who are blind or with low vision to touch and interact with the plants and includes braille signage and audio interpretation.

it's amazing to have a kind of tropical greenhouse in the atrium of a building. But it's certainly a beautiful effect

This is so pretty. My view is of a parking lot and I'd much prefer this one!

oh my goodness this is lovely. It reminds me a little of the atrium at Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, and Singapore airport. What a lovely space to escape the city. Enjoy the rest of your week, stay safe, and thankyou again for the linkup.
