October 2018 133 Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Institute at Lancaster General Health, Lancaster, Pa. Above: The healing garden occupies the central courtyard of the Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Institute at Lancaster General Health and creates a variety of spaces for quiet meditation while maintaining ADA accessibility. A glass curtain wall surrounds the garden and blurs the line between interior and exterior spaces, while views out through the building create a connection with the larger landscape beyond. Throughout the landscape, water is used as an element of continuity and as a demonstration of sustainability. The Elevated Walk at Chanticleer, Wayne, Pa. Below: The Elevated Walk at Chanticleer creates an accessible path that meanders down over 30 feet of vertical elevation, complete with places to stop, sit, and enjoy the view. By using a porous material, the design team avoided expensive systems to manage stormwater run-off, and by elevating the walkway, its footings have minimalized the impact on the hillside and the existing woodland. In addition to improving the woodland experience, the old lawn has been replaced with a meadow garden and groves of Aspen trees.
