Situated in the heart of downtown Chicago, the Crown Sky Garden is a sanctuary for patients, families, doctors and administrators within this 23 story Children’s Hospital. The commitment to this sky garden was built upon a growing body of scientific research which links access to natural light and contemplative spaces to reduced patient recovery time. This regenerative project offers a new paradigm for healthcare design that integrates healing gardens as part of the health care regiment within these institutional environments.

Recently described as a hospital within a garden, this new pediatric center in Chicago, along the Magnificent Mile, is partnering with the Center for Health Design to examine the impact of hospital design on stress levels in hospitalized children and their parents in the Crown Sky Garden.
The Sky Garden is a rich experience of bamboo groves, custom recycled resin panels, natural stone and reclaimed wood from the region. Children activate the garden through direct engagement and orchestrate sounds of nature throughout this greenhouse space. Situated within a glass green house, this garden is defined by a series of interactive elements of light, and sound within the colored resin walls and the locally reclaimed wood elements. Meandering groves of bamboos frame linear marble fountains adjacent to contemplative views of downtown Chicago through floor to ceiling glass windows. The garden incorporates a range of individual and collective spaces that meet the needs of children with immune deficiencies, while offering a place for discovery and innovative engagement.

NYC Metro Garden Design - Submit Garden Pictures

The purpose of this picture thread is to encourage everyone to submit pictures of and discuss gardening and gardens in the New York Metro Area.
One of the most interesting topics in the area is about Green Roofs. Because the area has such a high density of population, the NYC Metro area is considerably warmer than the rest of Zone 6. This is because of the heat from buildings and the lack of green surface area.
Because of this, there is a movement to build Green Roofs in Brooklyn and Queens.
Though Chicago has some projects on the forefront of technology transforming roofs into grow areas, there seems to be less of that happening here in our area
