The TFANA Arts Plaza is an entry plaza for The Theater For A New Audience, which is a new theater building in the BAM cultural arts district in Brooklyn New York. The principal features of the plaza include a grove of Locust trees with integrated sub grade soil cell planting system and pervious concrete paving for storm water infiltration. Plaza paving is composed of bands of pervious concrete and Mt. Airy white granite exposed aggregate concrete paving separated with curvilinear bands of brushed stainless steel. The paving bands are continued into the theater lobby to integrate plaza and building experience. Custom banquette seat rings were fabricated for the project to provide convivial social seating.
