ROOFscape garden

Roofscape is a place for revitalizing the senses.  It is a place to go to let time pass without a sense of urgency or expectation.  It is a place at the edge of the horizon.  It is a place where one remembers the subtleties that make the world around us full of wonder.  Roofscape is located on top of a quarter-mile long black steel and glass modernist building.  This building sits on a hillside, spanning a gorge that opens out to an expansive view of a valley.

The garden proposal includes a graduated and linear sequence of experiences that includes a meditative pool, rock gardens and berms that merge into a poppy field, culminating in a grove of  large willow branch nests.  Each of these experiences emerges out of response to the existing artificial and natural context to create contemplative moments.
