After two years of extensive renovation, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 5th Avenue Plaza opened to the public on September 10th. The MET is one of the world most prestigious museums with over six million visitors a year.

The completely redesigned plaza runs for four city blocks along the Museum’s entire facade on 5th Avenue. It features new fountains, rows of trees, shade providing parasols, designer granite benches and diffused night time lighting.

Spatial Affairs Bureau was part of the winning team for this select invited competition to provide site furnishing and architecture.
