The garden is accessed from a rooftop penthouse designed by pulltab and built two years earlier.  A large diameter steel pipe was cut and placed into a new stucco wall.  This aperture frames a view to a power plant located on the Lower East Side.  The steel ring was left unpainted so it can rust and bleed down the wall.   The floating bench is made from Cor-Ten steel and teak which is left to weather a beautiful grey.  East Village Roof Garden
