Fulton County Government
New York, NY
MPFP conceptualized, designed and implemented three types of spaces for this multi-faceted government building: A shady dining terrace, an atrium plaza and an outdoor garden courtyard. MPFP integrated passive seating, dining areas, performance spaces, art exhibits and displays into these areas to renovate yet complement the site’s existing context. Steps for gathering, tree covered courts, landscape terraces and a landscape interior atrium were utilized to dispel the banality usually associated with government campuses.
Sculptors Jackie Ferrara and Walter Dusenbery collaborated with the firm to explore a unique approach to integrating art and landscape architecture which would expand the visual richness of the combined spaces.
