As part of an expansion of the Lamont Health and Wellness Center, KZLA was able to create a new landscape gesture for student and staff gathering.  In addition, an existing narrow open space was refined as a new quadrangle enaging the science center and music building.  Low impact development is employed with a green roof, porous pavers, and a rain garden.
