Mikyoung was recently profiled in Boston Magazine’s spring home issue in the Innovators section. An excerpt is below:
More than two decades into her career, Mikyoung Kim doesn’t just sculpt landscapes: She creates interactive art. “If we could put up a sign in front [of our projects], we’d say, ‘Please touch. Please engage. Please climb,’” says the landscape architect, principal of the eponymous Boston-based firm. “That’s our motto.” And an incredibly effective one at that: Her firm’s innovative designs—an international medley of bamboo-laden gardens, serene college campuses, and reimagined public plazas—recently earned Kim a new spot on the Boston Civic Design Commission, not to mention two of the industry’s highest honors.
