“The Cooper Hewitt is directly adjacent Engineers Gate and the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, and many of the plantings here are different than what you see in the greater park,” Hood said. “These were planted during the City Beautiful era and grow in contrast to [Frederick] Olmsted’s curation of local flora and fauna.”

The team selected plants from the reservoir’s periphery such as Yoshino cherry trees, the red chokeberry, and rhododendrons as well as native herbaceous plants. Benches designed by Yves Béhar and playful Heatherwick Studio Spun Chairs provide ample seating and invite the public to stay and relax.
