Weiss/Manfredi designed the Brooklyn Botanic Garden's Robert W. Wilson Outlook in New York City, USA.
This project was a new addition to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden with an immersive four-season planting design of ornamental grasses and perennials.
Encompassing 1.25 acres of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s most significant unprogrammed site, the Robert W. Wilson Overlook features a garden of flowering crape myrtle trees and allows for expansive views over the Cherry Esplanade and Botanic Garden.
A subtly sloping switchback pathway with sculptural retaining walls enhances the Garden’s circulation by connecting the top and bottom of the steep hillside with a newly accessible route.
This network of paths, walls, and landscape extends the inhabitable topography realised in the adjacent Visitor Center and was completed by Weiss/Manfredi in 2012.
