Aerial view without community room

This is an illustrative drawing and Aerial view of “Origami Garden”. The artwork is an expressive gathering space located under an angular, elevated community room at the Tempe Transportation Center. The work includes faceted planting beds; xeriscape plantings; harvested gray/stormwater; gabions with recycled glass and LED lighting; rustic terrazzo paving; and a series of seating areas. A model for sustainable design and community planning, the Tempe Transportation Center provides a hub for buses/light rail and a transit center. (Note: the community room which floats above the courtyard is not shown in this illustrative drawing.)
