Design Intent

Axial vistas and a strolling garden create a strong sense of romance in the sculpture garden inspired by Monet’s Giverney. Transformed from a sterile landscape, the garden features a freeform pond and plantings that act as a backdrop for a dazzling 28 piece sculpture collection. The renovation of the Norton Simon Museum was a collaboration between NGP&A and architect Frank Gehry.
