“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.”
