Arizona's Rocks and Plants
- My building designs usually include at least schematic thinking for landscaping.
- I treat window views like fine art. Like a painting, the immediate outdoor perimeter to building offers a "middle ground", and the distant views offer a "background". Of course the interiors serve as the "foreground". In composition, it all works together.
- Thinking sonoran is also all about local materials(another aspect of my work). Born in Phoenix, my preference for "local" is intuitive.
- This image was taken in the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix(Arizona rocks, boulders, crushed granite, exposed aggregate concrete finish, and native plants).
