Artificial landscaping on roof garden at MOMA

Internationally acclaimed architect Ken Smith was the recipient of the 2011 Christian Petersen Design Award presented by the Iowa State University College of Design.   He is well known for his work on the Roof Garden of New York's Museum of Modern Art, which consists of white gravel, recycled black rubber, crushed glass, sculptural stones and artificial boxwood plants arranged in a camouflage pattern.  Load conditions and maintenance considerations led to the use of recycled materials, maintenance free shrubs and the lightweight rocks.   See if you can see which rocks are the same.
