This project is an extension of Blossom, the first phase of the project located on the Chinese Christian Church site. The work in this phase included the design and build of a grape arbor, gabion wall benches, rain gardens, and a floating platform on the Blackstone River. The goal of this construction was to tie the two pavilions from the first phase together with a series of elements within the landscape, and to extend an armature from the lower pavilion into the water.
