About

For the last twenty years, Mikyoung Kim Design has crafted an exceptional body of work, spanning a wide range of landscape typologies in the United States, East Asia and the Middle East. The firm has developed a reputation for culturally significant design work that serve as a powerful tool to heal and enliven the public realm. Their work addresses pressing environmental issues, while celebrating the beauty of our collective human experience through the use of contemporary materials and technologies. Today, Mikyoung Kim Design’s work is defined by a seasoned understanding of material detailing and a whimsical celebration of the transformative and healing power of the natural world.

Mikyoung’s diverse background in design and sculpture has shaped her body of work, blurring the boundaries between landscape architecture and environmental art. From children’s playgrounds to city parks and urban master plans, her work reflects a deep commitment to memorable place making that captures the public imagination. Her landscapes bring a richly layered civic experience to the public realm that engages the senses for a multi-generational audience.

“I had the pleasure of working with Mikyoung’s team on the Crown Sky Garden. This empty space held the hopes, dreams and aspirations for so many different people. What impressed me was how Mikyoung listened to our patients and really heard what was important to them. She grasped how the design of this space could play an important role in the healing of our patients, families and our staff, who do emotionally challenging work every day.”
