Title: Mayo Gardens
Author: Blank, Michael
Abstract: This thesis is an urban design project hybridizing architecture and landscape architecture. The relationship between landscape architecture and architecture reveals three basic modes which will be studied: contrast, merger, and reciprocity. These design principles will be implemented in designing a multilayered space that is innovative and explores the relationship of indoor and outdoor spaces. The transition from indoor to outdoor will be the primary area of focus in the design. The Mayo Clinic in downtown Rochester, MN is in need of an innovative landscape design that compliments the architecture of the Mayo Clinic. By integrating a landscape into the architecture it will create an iconic place for people to enjoy. The design responds to the existing architecture in form and materials to create a harmonious relationship. The circulation of the Clinic’s 40,000 employees and patients via skyway, street level, and subway will provide the opportunity for a multilevel design. Rochester’s historical architecture and modern medical facilities provides an opportunity for a unique design that explores this dynamic relationship between the two contrasting styles of architecture.
