Located on the far west side of Manhattan, the Javits Center is New York City's primary venue for trade shows. FXFOWLE developed a plan to renovate the building enclosure and expand the facility from 1.9 million to nearly 6 million square feet. The Javit's Center’s new 6.75-acre green roof, the largest green roof in the Northeast, reduces water runoff and heat gain, helping to lower the facility's annual energy consumption by 26%. 

Focusing on the Javits Center’s green roof, Follow the Water, includes David Sundberg’s photographs of the renovation, which was completed in 2014.
