Gabby Jones for The New York Times

Saying goodbye to a persisting slice of 80’s Egyptian revival aesthetic at 60 Wall Street. πŸ•―οΈπŸŒ΄

The Kevin Roche-designed atrium at 60 Wall stood out as one of the most distinctive publicly-owned private spaces (POPS) in the city, a polarizing place where anyone could grab a seat indoors and marvel at the surreal oasis of palm trees and stone pillars.

Despite valiant efforts to save it, the space was approved for demolition to be modernized. As construction began, Design Trust, Open House New York, and the Municipal Art Society gathered to pay final respects.

β€œIn a city that is chaotic, messy, and weird, we need these kinds of spaces,” rallied Matthew Clarke, Executive Director of Design Trust for Public Space.
