SKIMS at Rockefeller Center 
Spring Channel Gardens

Date: Spring 2023

Location: New York, USA

Project Team: Watson Salembier

Client: Tishman Speyer

A vibrant spring palette of purple foxgloves, blue indigo, and irises leading visitors to the two-week SKIMS pop-up at Rockefeller Center’s Channel Gardens in May 2023.

In 2023, Watson Salembier created the spring planting design at the Channel Gardens, an urban oasis which serves as a corridor for pollinators within the dense city fabric while offering visitors a place of rest.

For two weeks in May, the light blue and purple hues of blooming foxgloves and irises speckled throughout this vibrant planting design complimented an exclusive SKIMS pop-up at the center of the garden. This activation—the first of its kind in the heart of Rockefeller Center—carried cotton summer essentials in the weeks leading up to the month of June.
