Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts Public Spaces and Infoscape


The Lincoln Center Public Spaces Project includes the transformation of Lincoln Center’s three-block frontage at Columbus Avenue, the redesign of Fountain Plaza and North Plaza, a network of smart technologies integrated with traditional building materials to deliver real-time information throughout the campus, and the conversion of 65th Street from a service corridor into a New York City street, dubbed the "Avenue of the Arts".
