Tour the Queens Botanical Garden on “Archtober” 4th

Queens Botanical Garden, Visitor Center and Administration Building, Flushing, New York, BKSK Architects

We’re delighted to share that the BKSK-designed Visitor and Administration Center of the Queens Botanical Garden has been selected as an Archtober “Building of the Day.” The first publicly-funded building in the city to achieve LEED Platinum certification, this 16,000 sf center was conceived as a complement to the natural landscape — not an overt destination in itself, but a backdrop to the garden’s rich topography, flora, fauna, and ongoing seasonal changes.

Sign up today to learn the many lessons that this building has to offer, both architecturally and environmentally, from BKSK’s Joan Krevlin and QBG’s Patty Kleinberg.
