Echoing the form of two cupped hands, the New Peace Garden frames a lush and intimate public garden focused on the ‘project of peace’ with a restored Pavilion and iconography, all while sloping to cover and acoustically temper a major parking lot exhaust. It transforms a noisy back-of-house no-mans-land into a calm and richly planted destination to linger in.
