Landscape Design

Bringing some rooms outside... That's landscape architecture in a nutshell.

THE TASK: Extend the walkway to enable placement of more "Memorial Bricks," inscribed in memory of cancer patients who have passed away.

THE ASSIGNMENT: Add another loop to the walkway.

THE SOLUTION: Mirror the existing design, thus forming a heart. The landscape would thus embody and echo the meaning of the installation. The walkway which would become the inner path would also symbolize the broken heart of those who have lost dear ones. Simultaneously walking the path of the heart internally and physically could help provide a sense of closure to those bereaved of their loved ones.

From a pragmatic point of view, mirroring the loop helps to calculate renovation costs, based on the installation costs of the existing exterior-loop tangent.
