Stained a deep fuchsia and topped in faux turf, this easy-to-assemble landscape of outdoor loungers provides respite from the hot sun for art and design students at Arizona State University in Tempe. The lumber elements were shaped into gentle topographies and unique geometries and clad in oak plywood wedges CNC cut and hand finished to form a variegated surface. The courtyard setting incorporates planters for such desert trees as paloverde and mesquite and doubles as a performance space – should someone wish to stage a modern twist on Shakespeare in the Park.
