The Azalea Park Water Conservation Garden simultaneously teaches conservation values and restores a dilapidated city lot into a peaceful and beautiful community gathering space.

 

2015: The Azalea Park Water Conservation Garden received a Merit Award from the American Society of Landscape Architects

 

This gateway sculpture was made from found objects and recycled materials. It is illuminated using inexpensive and accessible solar components. Community members donated small items that were incorporated into the sculpture. Playful by day and magical by night, the Totems became an identifying landmark for San Diego’s Azalea Park Community. The materials are temporary in nature, leading to a playful evolution of installations.
