Banner Good Samaritan Medical Hospital Healing Garden 1997-98
Baron Studio in collaboration with architect Barbara Crisp, landscape architects Christy Ten Eyck and Kristine Floor, designed the major renovation of the existing space inside the hospital, into a Healing Garden.
Baron Studio designed the nine existing 12’ columns into works of texture & color to enliven the space. Custom “wisdom circles” were created that honored the lives of loved ones for many years to follow. Baron Studio installed on-site for over 6 months during which time a poetic walking meditation “The Pillars Message” was composed & installed.
