Martha Jefferson Park

This ambitious campus park was to be a signature public space for this area of the rapidly expanding city. As the hub for a significant medical campus, it would have hundreds of weekday users and thousands on weekends. We created the programmatic features based on successful parks from around the region. Anchored by a signature clock tower that would be seen from distances, it would also have a peaceful lake, expansive lawns for sport, an amphitheater, children’s playground, ornamental gardens and a multi-purpose activity pavilion.

Though it did not materialize, the process of design for this project was very fulfilling and our clients were pleased.
