Queens Botanical Garden - Where people, plants, and cultures meet

Work inside the main building continues as the equipment for the geothermal system is installed and ceilings are put into place.  Outside, the piping and foundations of the rainwater, graywater and geothermal systems are being excavated and installed.

A mockup for the architectural concrete walls of the Auditorium has been poured, and work will begin on the real walls soon.  These walls feature board-formed poured concrete that will have the natural texture of wood.
