Recently, Landmarks sat down with Claire Eddleman-Heath, a designer with Asakura Robinson, to discuss the landscape architecture of the newly renovated Anna Hiss Gymnasium courtyard, home to Simone Leigh’s Sentinel IV. Our discussion covered the process behind designing the courtyard space, the influence of Leigh’s sculpture on the design, and the sustainability of the landscaping selected.

On Thursday, July 15, Landmarks unveiled its newest acquisition, Sentinel IV by artist Simone Leigh. The bronze sculpture is located in the courtyard of the Anna Hiss Gymnasium, a building that once served as the women’s gym at the center of the university’s Women’s Campus. Its courtyard anchors the sculpture in a welcoming garden that serves as a gathering space which invites reflection and engagement.
