As Brooklyn Botanic Garden (BBG) marks its centennial, it's preparing for the next century of service to the neighborhood, borough, and approximately 725,000 annual visitors who come from near and far. The new Visitor Center is one of a series of strategically planned Garden-wide projects that are based on community service, sustainability, and ecologically sound practices. The new space will house an array of exhibits to welcome visitors to BBG. Visitors will be able to discover what plants are in bloom and explore the science and aesthetics of the plant world. The new Visitor Center will house a new garden shop, an orientation room for tours and classes, an information desk, more restrooms, and an event space. Green features will include a “living roof” that utilizes a range of native and drought-resistant plants. The Visitor Center will model green building practices with recycled materials, passive solar principles and geothermal heating and cooling. Overall, the new Visitor Center aspires for L.E.E.D Gold certification.
