Met Museum Plaza

TYLin provided structural engineering services for the comprehensive revitalization of the four-block-long David H. Koch Plaza on Fifth Avenue.

This project repositioned the fountains closer to the Metropolitan Museum’s front steps. These new granite fountains, which are operational year-round, are square in plan with an inset circle. Stone benches line the north and south edges of the squares.

The plaza also features tree-shaded passageways with two rows of large parasols installed parallel to the circulation for additional shade. Additional renovation work included the addition of energy efficient nighttime lighting and the replacement of existing pavement with new granite paving.
