Landscape designUCLA and landscape teamre new park in Tulsa (as reported in NYTimes): Mr. Van Valkenburgh grew up on a dairy farm in the Catskills, where he tended the family garden. A zealous cook, his approach to landscapes is similar to the one he uses in the kitchen: “You look through the house and see what you have,” as he put it. Unlike earlier eras of park design, which focused on observing scenery, parks today, he said, “are about intensity of involvement, with people and space becoming one organism.”

Example of a small bet plus for Pando@Maryknoll which creates integrated engagement opportunity for LACI, City of Monrovia, neighborhood and sisters. Provides platform for seed library.

Also ties in nicely with John Cobb’s vision for integral ecology and landscape design planning underway. Draw for local schools and community organizations.

Ritual and worship spaceChapelCreate interfaith spaceINTERESTING ARCHITECTURAL REFERENCE: https://charlesrossstudio.com/collection/solar-spectrum/; INTERESTING REFERENCE ABOUT RITUAL PURPOSE IN ARMENIAN CULTURE THAT IS WORTH CITING: But in a sense every Armenian church joined the particular to the universal in a similar manner. In the words of the Armenian liturgy, the act of consecration of any church, great or small, brought the immensity of God into a small space. Hence the detailed carvings of models of churches, placed in the constructed buildings, which are such a striking feature of medieval Armenian art. A limitless God was thought to come down among the faithful to a holy place of any size, from the most grandiose to the most humble (https://www.nybooks.com/articles/2019/01/17/armenia-between-two-empires/). Great opportunity to create ways to let light into the existing structure, a la Ross
