The Building 14 Courtyard, revitalized as part of the Hayden Library renovation, has won a Merit Award in General Design from the Boston Society of Landscape Architects. The design team includes Stephen Stimson Associates Landscape Architects, Inc., Kennedy & Violich Architecture, Buro Happold, Pine & Swallow Environmental, and Aqueous Consultants.
Praising the design for its simplicity and elegance, the jury said, “There is a nice seasonality of planting done beautifully. There is a simple, modern, understated vibe, and the view into and within is beautiful. Lives within the building in a nice way. The placement of the sculptural pieces is well-considered and provides nice visual anchors in the landscape.”
