Inscription.  The Healing Garden consists of a series of low granite walls, benches and water elements set within the landscape of the building's courtyard. One of the water elements integrates a series of textured granite and bronze runnels that vary the sound of flowing water. The other water element has a hidden water source with a spiral water well set into the earth and surrounded by ground cover succulents. The Healing Garden is intended as a place where workers can seek respite within a quiet contemplative garden.
 
Erected 2002.
