The Lowerre Family Terrace, the Marymount Manhattan College’s new 5,000-square foot quad, offers a respite in a natural setting and features a water wall, heated trellis and garden areas.
To quote the college, the terrace was ‘designed and built through independent efforts by New York-based architects and engineers, enhances the original structure built by John Russell Pope in 1929 and serves as an outdoor venue that complements its New York City metropolitan surroundings.’
