Come In: The Entrance Experience with Matthew Urbanski

November 9, 2017, 6:30pm8:00pm


Matthew Urbanski, a principal in the firm of Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates (MVVA), is the lead landscape architect of Brooklyn Bridge Park, among other distinguished projects worldwide. Urbanski brings his extensive design knowledge to re-think Green-Wood’s entrance – the Come In project – an undertaking currently in the planning phase. Urbanski will discuss the concepts and challenges of working at Green-Wood and other historic sites, as well as a wide range of additional innovative work by MVVA. The Come In project is inspired by the restoration of Green-Wood’s Weir Greenhouse and poses the question, “With the Weir Greenhouse directly across the street from Green-Wood’s grand Gothic archway, how can the landscape serve to connect the two and add meaning to the entrance experience?”


Tickets: $20, $15 for members of Green-Wood or The Brooklyn Historical Society
