The Blake Garden Project

UC Berkeley’s LA 254:3 Water Savvy Garden Design class, with Lecturer Dawn Kooyumjian, is designing a major adaptive restoration, research-based installation sited in Blake Garden.

​The installation will include two separate components based on student-generated design: (1) slope stabilization research using sustainable methods, including reused, recycled, and biodegradable materials and (2) installation of a viewing platform made of locally-sourced materials. The viewing platform would emphasize the spectacular view of the Bay, which draws inspiration to many, and is a popular photo-taking spot during the departmental commencement.
