Mikyoung Kim and the Stamford Environmental Magnet School
Mikyoung Kim Design (Mikyoung Kim, Professor, Landscape Arch., principal) recently completed a sustainable landscape architecture project for the Stamford Environmental Magnet School. At the heart of the design is a rain garden that collects stormwater from roofs and impervious surfaces. The infrastructure for the stormwater retention basin is the foundation of a demolished building. The intention of the magnet school is to create an environment that allows for kids K-8 to engage with the processes of nature and to learn through making and doing.
