One of the largest and best-known arts complexes in the world, the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts encompasses 12 independent companies and 15 venues bringing a wide range of events to five million visitors per year. Part of Lincoln Center’s 0 million West 65th St. redevelopment plan, the redesigned Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts has a free standing glass-walled restaurant topped with a 10,000 sf sloped vegetated roof that doubles as a campus lawn – The Hypar Pavilion. Shaped in the form of a hyperbolic paraboloid, architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro and FX Fowle Architects, in collaboration with other experts, first tested mock-ups of the greenroof lawn at 1/16 the size of the actual space. The roof reaches a full height of 11 feet from the plaza level and 23 feet from the sidewalk level and extends down to the plaza on the south end, providing access for pedestrians. Consisting of a blend of tall fescue and Kentucky Blue grasses, the slope varies from a 1:12 pitch at the landing point to a 3:12 slope at the edges. About 50% of the roof is at a 2:12 slope, providing a fairly comfortable climb for visitors. American Hydrotech teamed with the design firms to meet the challenge of installing a greenroof of this imposing shape: GardNet Related Postslincoln center grass roofGrant High School – Performing Arts Dept – Secret Garden – Hannah/Will version – May 7, 2008Brooklyn Botanic Garden Visitor Center – Project of the Week 5/16/16Sam Nunn Atlanta Federal Center – Project of the Week 4/3/17LeFrak Center at Lakeside – Prospect Park – Project of the Week 8/3/15Atlanta Botanical Garden, Hardin Visitors Center – Project of the Week 3/21/16
