The Amsterdam Vale: Designing Wildness

Janes Walk

Led By Chad Smith, Smith & Architects

In this on-demand walk activity, led by architect Chad Smith, you will visit the newly built Amsterdam Vale, a private garden and package room for residents at the historic walk-ups at the corner of 83rd Street and Amsterdam Avenue. The design for The Amsterdam Vale was guided by new ideas exploring biophilic design. On this walk activity, you will learn about biophilic design and directly experience new ideas for bringing nature back into dense Manhattan.


We will close-caption our video.
