This 10 acre public landscape is spread across over 100' of grade change and unites the LAC + USC Medical Campus. The public gardens are divided into three landscape typologies, creating unique landscape experiences for patients, their families and hospital staff. The design of these typologies analyzes and abstracts the dominant regional landscapes of the mountains, valleys and coastal ecologies of southern California to create a distinct sense of place throughout the campus.
Tony Paradowski was project designer through all phases of design an for LAC+ USC while at Rios Clementi Hale Studios.
