Boston Children’s Hospital front entrance was recently
updated with a new visual identity. The architect and designer, Mikyoung Kim,
deemed the space as “Playful Nature in the City”. Among other natural aspects,
a “hide and seek” style stone wall sits at the main entrance of the hospital.
This playful graphic was created using sandblasting techniques and is inscribed
with images from nature; from plant life to birds and butterflies. This large
wall was created with approximately 1,200 square feet of ANSI/NSC 373 certified
Mesabi Black® granite, and is accompanied by about 1,859 square feet of
surrounding curbing in the same stone.
The wall makes a bold statement while achieving harmony with
its natural surroundings.
