Ripple Healing Garden
Project Location: Miami, FL
Client: Miami Jackson South Community Hospital
Located at the entrance of the Miami Jackson Hospital, this sculptural garden offers respite from the activities of the hospital with sculptural paving water jet with a ripple pattern. Cooling mist is choreographed to frame the central space and collect excess water along the ripple patterns in the stone. Located in Miami, and inspired by the patterns of the ocean over sand, highlighting the movement of water as it flows and retreats along the surf. Landforms and plant materials reinforce the ripple mosaic offering a healing garden with a rich palette of materials for this hospital setting.
