Exhale Public Plaza by Mikyoung Kim
Exhale Public Plaza
Exhale Public Plaza
Located in the heart of downtown Chapel Hill, the 140 West Urban Plaza is the first project in a larger town masterplan to invigorate this college town with greater pedestrian oriented landscapes. Framed by mixed-use development, this central gathering space offers a much-needed public forum for play. The plaza is anchored by a dynamic sculptural fog fountain that utilizes mist and color to define arterial pedestrian connections and encourage multi-generational engagement. This restorative project celebrates the hydrological cycles of the environment.

Topography 1 Seating Sculpture
Located near a retail street West Palm Beach, this creates a featured amenity for visitors and locals alike. A sculptural seating piece made of laminated natural stone slabs acts to retain a rain garden managing storm water on site. The project drapes all native stone materials across the site to create a wave-like form. These stone slabs start from the plaza paving and sweeps upward to create the bench for people to sit. Visitors can sit in the shade of the canopy trees and view the integral art piece, or interact with the sculpture itself, finding ways to sit, stand, lie and climb.

888 Boylston Street Public Plaza
Located in the heart of Boston’s historic Back Bay neighborhood, the design of the Prudential Plaza highlights the wind patterns on site through such innovative elements as seemingly wind-swept, carved granite planters and a grove of forty-four color-changing steel light columns, each capped with a sculptural wind vane that moves with the wind. These “light vanes” transform this urban plaza into a living wind map. Designed in conjunction with the new 888 Boylston Street tower, the plaza has become an epicentre for retail, dining, and civic events in downtown Boston.
