Info






The Ford Foundation Building is an office building in Midtown Manhattan designed by architect Kevin Roche and engineering partner, John Dinkeloo. Designed in 1963 and completed in 1968 on the former site of the Hospital for Special Surgery, its large tree-filled atrium was the first of its kind in Manhattan, and it is widely credited as setting the precedent for indoor public spaces in Manhattan office buildings.
The building was one of the first that Roche-Dinkeloo produced after they became heads of Eero Saarinen's firm, following his death in 1961. It won the AIA Twenty-five Year Award in 1995.
In October 2016, the Ford Foundation Building began a major renovation and restoration project that will reinvigorate the building’s mission—ensuring that it works for far more people, is open to the public, and serves as an uplifting and energizing space for change.
