From the architect. Construction is complete on Hypar Pavilion at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, situated on the edge of Hearst Plaza and 65th Street, the new free standing structure is the home of a new public lawn and restaurant.

The dual requirements of a destination restaurant and a public green space located within the confines of the Plaza are satisfied with a single architectural gesture sited between the reflecting pool and the plaza’s north edge. Elizabeth Diller comments, “Hypar Pavilion’s moment of invention came when we discovered how to design a destination restaurant without consuming public space on the Lincoln Center campus. The roof became a new kind of interface between public and private, with an occupiable twisting grass canopy over a glass pavilion restaurant.”

The Hypar Pavilion lawn is accessed at its single point of contact with the Plaza. The 7,200sf lawn surface lifts up at two opposing corners creating a space for the restaurant sandwiched between the Plaza level and the twisting parabolic roof. The resulting topography of the lawn above is oriented away from city noise and traffic, creating a bucolic urbanism.

The 11,000 sqf restaurant occupies two levels with entrances from 65th street and Hearst Plaza. The main dining floor is co-planar with the Plaza surface and the transparent facades link diners to Lincoln Center’s public life that spills onto the plaza before, during, and after performances. At its center is the 1,000 sqf kitchen open to the dining areas. The restaurant has a capacity for 194 guests including a Lounge area, Bar seating and private Dining Room located on the 65th street level.

Hypar Pavilion continues Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s strategic updates to the Lincoln Center campus, which previously included: the redesign of Alice Tully Hall, the expansion and renovation of The Juilliard School, and the public Promenade project.

It seemed a built project for Japanese Architect kazuyo Sejima long time ago. But diller adopted this idea and used their project. why not! let more people inspire good ideas.

I really hope they don't use non-native strain of your typical lawn grass though, since that stuff is a guzzler of water and takes LOTS of resources to maintain. It takes 270 billion gallons of water a WEEK to maintain lawns in the US? That's enough to water eighty-one million acres of organic vegetable, ALL SUMMER LONG. So... while the idea is pretty cool, I really really hope the project is sustainable, by maybe using native species, drought-hardy, alternative ground covers... but it doesn't look like it. And forget style, why not use it as an organic vegetable/herb garden the restaurant can use for it's ingredients?

MPArch · December 14, 2010 04:30 AM

Because funny enough, no one's going there for the restaurant. I go to school right up the block, and our students, the students of Juilliard School, and people waiting for a performance at Lincoln Center are meeting and hanging out on the lawn, and not at the restaurant. Landscape urbanism is the future! In another part of the city, maybe a garden would make sense but not here..

Hyperbolic paraboloid.

Ok, so what is so new here? We have 50' modernist loggias surrounding a 50's modernist, though in fact contemporary (!), (Felix Candela-esque) insertion.

There are much other more inventive, more substantive ways, of placing icons in plazas (trad. Italian arch. comes to mind; also Modernists, eg. Terragni, Rossi, Stirling, Corb).

Style has completely co-opted substance in this solution.
Very relective of priorities of our times.

A bit too Brazilian for my taste...........

Beautiful project! Very nice gesture to the context!

Holcim Awards · December 08, 2010

This a great design. I love how Diller, Scofidio and Renfro create playful forms that focus on human usability. That rooftop grass looks like a perfect place for an urban picnic and some sun bathing.
