LSU Medical Education Building

The project's focus was on the second floor terrace. The client wanted a landscape that was able to function as both a space for learning, teaching and reflection.  The client also wanted the design to be rooted in south Louisiana southern culture, including elements such as a historic sugar kettle, re claimed iron benches and gates. 

The design focused on the having "conversation" rooms along the exterior space to allows teachers and students to have intimate conversations.  The central space was left open to be flexible, to allow larger gathering, with movable table and chairs. Flanking either side of the larger gathering area is the antique cast iron sugar kettle to the west and juxtaposed on the east side is a modern Chihuly sculpture, commissioned for the space.
