Scott Murase was in Oklahoma City this week to work on the creation of the new waterfall inside the Conservatory.
A second-generation landscape artist, Scott Murase learned the craft of placemaking while collaborating alongside his father, Robert Murase, an internationally acclaimed landscape architect. His multi-disciplinary background in architecture, landscape architecture and sculpture combine to inspire his approach to site design. Using combinations of stone, water, wood and metal, Murase’s work is featured at the Devon Energy headquarters in downtown Oklahoma City, and in the Meinders Terrace at Myriad Botanical Gardens.
A newly designed, two-level waterfall feature will greet visitors as they enter the Conservatory with sounds of water cascading over natural stone. Tropical water plants will be planted in the waterfall and in a small pool at the base. A new staircase will be built on the west side of the waterfall with a small lookout for visitors to enjoy the views as they walk up to the second level.
