Poetry Garden Plaza Private Open Space
199 Fremont, San Francisco, California
Integral to the interactive design process was close collaboration with the Architect, Antonia Bava Landscape Architects, Poet Robert Hass and Sculptor Paul Kos. Integrating the vision of poetry and sculpture, the landscape design seeks to create a cohesive design thesis between words, spatial quality, stone and vegetation expressed as a common vision among building, landscape, poetry and sculpture.
