SILVEIRA, RA Queens Borough Hall Planted Fountain Farman Serecce bras Community and Neighborhood Context: Queens Borough Hall (QBH), a four story brick building situated in the Kew Gardens neighborhood was builtin 1940 to serve as the center of civic life for the borough of Queens in New York City. The statue entitled The Triumph of Civic Virtue and designed by Frederick William MacMonnies, was mounted on top of an existing classical fountain in the park-like setting adjacent to QBH. Although the controversial statue which depicts man’s struggle over vice and corruption, remained in this location for over seventy years, it was recently removed from its base and will be restored and installed in a new home in Green-Wood cemetery in Brooklyn. The original fountain remains in the park. Design Intent: ‘The Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) wishes to keep the original fountain as a planted ruin, a scenic backdrop to a busy and important intersection in the borough. The proposed design will enliven the space with a refurbished sitting area where new pavement, fencing, benches, lighting and plantings will be installed. Additionally, the fountain, although left as a “ruin”, will be planted with grasses and groundcovers and act as a landscape folly to enhance this prominent corner.
