The final phase of Cooper Hewitt’s incredible renovation and expansion is the transformation of the Arthur Ross Terrace and Garden—a rare gem of open green space in Manhattan.

Hood Design Studio, in collaboration with Raft Landscape Architects, is evolving the original Richard Schermerhorn, Jr. garden design from 1901. The design is inspired by local geology and plantings in Central Park and features new terrace pavers, enlarged garden pathways, colorful plantings and a re-imagined rock garden (rockery). The design will honor the historic nature of the garden, while providing an improved landscape experience for all.

The garden will be open to the public free of charge, starting at 8:00 a.m. daily—two hours before the museum opens. It will also be the site for a variety of public programs and events.
