California Courtyard, 1985
The California Courtyard office Armature, depicts a public space that serves as an entrance to a commercial high rise. The ivy-covered landscaped wall is influenced by Australian architect Paul Ritter. The courtyard walls are opportunities to incorporate allusions to specific local historical events in deep textural reliefs and landscaping. The landscaped walls covered in vines and clustered plant boxes add depth to the texture. The courtyard design can be adapted as a model for regional needs.
