Minneapolis Sculpture Garden Renovation, Minneapolis, MN

This reconstruction of a landscape design classic has focused on embedding a renewed sculpture garden with better infrastructure and materials/assemblies to meet the demands placed on this important public space.  The design calls for the development of more resilient landscape infrastructure such as infiltration basins, bioretention ponds, and more adaptable plantings to create a surface that can absorb the impacts of nearly 1 million visitors a year.  These new systems integrate into the formal aspects of the original design, to create a renewed landscape that builds on the existing garden’s classical geometry of garden rooms and alleés.
