Innature

“Innature” by San Antonio artist Ashley Mireles in collaboration with landscape architect STIMSON Studio provides visitors a space to view wildlife in a natural environment as a means for connectivity. An oversized mirrored representation of blossoms from native plants found within Hardberger Park lines the wildlife blind on all sides with viewpoints at various heights looking out into the meadow surrounding the blind. The Corten steel structure provides a perennial likeness of the Prickly Pear, Bushy Bluestem, and Texas Mountain Laurel with innate integrity while supporting the inherent relationship between nature and its viewer.

Interior View.  View from the outside.   Design features the flora of the area.  The design allows you to view wildlife from a safe distance.
