City of Hope Argyros Garden

Duarte, California

Client: City of Hope

In close collaboration with the City of Hope staff, AHBE has been designing and implementing landscapes throughout the campus. We started a landscape master plan that organizes the campus landscape and creates a pedestrian-oriented  campus that supports City of Hope’s broader philosophy about healing, research and education. The phased implementation strategy serves as a road map which guides the City of Hope planning staff with the future expansion of the campus. The Argyros Family Garden is a new central garden that is designed for community gatherings including weekly farmer’s market, space for receptions, and outdoor spaces for the researchers, faculty and patients. Made possible by the Argyros Family Foundation, the garden provides a natural space of light, water, trees and native plants designed to foster emotional, mental and physical healing.
