Product description

Ken Smith/New York Projects focuses on three prominent works in New York City: East River Ferry Landings, P.S. 19, and MoMA Rooftop Garden. Through colourful, playful drawings and photographs each project explores new expressions of landscape design in the city. Smith's works reflect the intensity and energy of their surroundings and challenge the distinction between landscape and art form.
