One of our favorite parts about being landscape architects is to visit projects after they are built and observe how they are being used (or not used). Last week we photographed The Simons Center for Geometry and Physics at SUNY Stony Brook. We were happy to see that the staff has made the project their own by growing edible foods and herbs on the rooftop terrace for their kitchen. The North Courtyard is an intimate space used daily for tea and casual conversations at the chalkboards. We relied on the talented eye of Mark Weinberg to capture the space. Check out more of his work on instagram and his website.

“I would leave everything here: the valleys, the hills, the paths, and the jaybirds from the gardens, I would leave here the petcocks and the padres, heaven and earth, spring and fall, I would leave here the exit routes, the evenings in the kitchen, the last amorous gaze, and all of the city-bound directions that make you shudder, I would leave here the thick twilight falling upon the land, gravity, hope, enchantment, and tranquility, I would leave here those beloved and those close to me, everything that touched me, everything that shocked me, fascinated and uplifted me, I would leave here the noble, the benevolent, the pleasant, and the demonically beautiful, I would leave here the budding sprout, every birth and existence, I would leave here incantation, enigma, distances, inexhaustibility, and the intoxication of eternity; for here I would leave this earth and these stars, because I would take nothing with me from here, because I’ve looked into what’s coming, and I don’t need anything from here.”
