Restorative Ground is a temporary installation envisioned as an inclusive landscape of choice, which draws from ongoing research by WIP Collaborative about public spaces for neurodiverse populations of all ages and abilities. Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, the installation highlights the importance of providing a range of spatial qualities - high and low stimulation, tactile materials and textures, distinct experiential zones - in order to create a truly supportive public environment.
The WIP Collaborative team is composed of seven independent designers and their respective practices including Abby Coover (Overlay Office), Elsa Ponce, Bryony Roberts (Bryony Roberts Studio), Ryan Brooke Thomas (Kalos Eidos), Lindsay Harkema (WIP), Sera Ghadaki, and Sonya Gimon.
