Mini Bosque

mini bosque

A grove of Quercus ilex.  10 trees. A single drinking fountain, same spec as every other one in town. Gravel ground plane. Horrible 1970’s light standard. Semi-circular retaining seating wall. How boring would it look like in plan view? How unimaginative?  How little of the magic of “design”?

And yet at sunset…..ahhhh…..

There is dignity in this.  An affirming, low energy, low impact place.  Peaceful and reflective. Do we need more in our day to day urban environments?
