This little sidewalk treasure was a pleasant yet unexpected find in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. Well designed landscapes with a modern flair are not the typical scene on these streets. Raised planting beds created from coreten steel provide structure and character to the otherwise dull streetscape. The raised beds allude to the way Richard Serra utilizes positive and negative space in his sculptures. With a play on height and form, these beds help define the entrance to this new condo building as well as the nearby subway entrance.
