A kind of park will be built around the fountain in the plaza in front of Lincoln Center in New York this summer.
The venue announced Tuesday (local time) that a synthetic turf will be placed between the Metropolitan Opera, the New York City Ballet and the performance hall of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra.
There should always be outdoor events – but also books to borrow as well as snacks and drinks every day between May and September. “I wanted to create a place where you could lie on a grassy hill and read a book all afternoon,” said artist Mimi Lyn, who created the composition for the Lincoln Center. “I hope the raised turf surface looks like an embrace and sprawl at the same time, and will rethink this place as a place of social infrastructure.”
Due to the Corona pandemic, the opera and performance halls of the ballet troupe and the Philharmonic Orchestra are currently closed; No opening is planned before the end of the year. At least small events can now happen overseas.
