GV’s landscape at the Conservatory includes many stepped level changes like these wood clad landforms. They can be seen as sculpture, sat on like benches, or used as bandstands depending on the moment. The design creates stages for interaction — socially, intellectually, and musically — a place to dwell and gather in an otherwise linear landscape.
