About

Over the past two decades, Mikyoung Kim Design has crafted an exceptional body of award-winning work that redefines the discipline of landscape architecture, inhabiting the intersection of art and science. From the art of ecology and restorative landscapes, the firm's work is a richly layered tapestry that address the most pressing environmental and health-related challenges, while creating artful and immersive experiences.

Mikyoung Kim Design’s work is defined by a seasoned understanding of material detailing, as well as a celebration of the transformative and healing power of the natural world. The firm's work reflects a deep commitment to memorable place making that captures the public imagination. As a multi-disciplinary office, their ideas emerge through a responsive and collaborative approach that imagines possibilities across disciplines and scales.

Mikyoung’s diverse background in design and sculpture has shaped her practice, blurring the boundaries between landscape architecture and environmental art. From children’s playgrounds to city parks and urban master plans, her team's 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.”
