Dear friends and colleagues,
It is with great pleasure that we honor the Annual Florida
Chapter Design Awards recipients, newest Honorary ASLA
Members, Fellows inductees, and leadership for 2010 and
2011! The caliber of knowledge and works presented il-
lustrate the passion of Landscape Architects across Florida
working to create unique experiences, while at the same
time protecting the health, safety and welfare of the resi-
dents and guests of our great state.
In 2010, the Florida Chapter celebrated 50 years with over
350 people attending our Annual Conference and Expo in
Gainesville. Former Florida Governor Buddy MacKay and for-
mer University of Florida Department of Landscape Architec-
ture Chair Herrick Smith provided Keynote Speeches during
the Conference. The Florida Chapter also honored three new
inductees into the ASLA Council of Fellows. The 2010 FLASLA
Executive Committee worked tirelessly to fulfll the Chapter’s
Mission during a challenging time for our profession. Among
the measures that the ExCom approved was a reduction in
Chapter membership dues for emerging professionals, a CEC
Traveling Road Show to make educational opportunities
more accessible to the membership throughout the state,
and new communication tools to connect with members,
including the renewal of a Chapter Newsletter. Despite a
tight budget, Chapter leadership was still able to prioritize
education by providing a donation to each of the state’s
university Landscape Architecture programs. In addition, the
Edward D. Stone Jr. Landmark Award was established and
the Government Afairs Committee (GAC) spearheaded the
Chapter’s participation in the Stormwater Task Force.
The Florida Chapter ASLA continued to build upon its previ-
ous successes throughout 2011 as it looked to the future
and laid the foundations for further growth and improve-
ment of membership services, a holistic communications
process, market branding, and a public relations strategy.
Membership was maintained near 700 dedicated members.
The Chapter evaluated the expenses and benefts of many
services and programs and made necessary adjustments to
remain fnancially strong despite the decreased member-
ship and sponsorship seen just a few years ago. Chapter
representatives worked with the Governor’s Appointment
Ofce to appoint new Landscape Architect and Consumer
members to ensure the viability of the Board of Landscape
Architecture. FLASLA members also continued their outreach
to national ASLA through appointments on several ASLA
committees and involvement in education sessions and
panel discussions at the ASLA Annual Meeting & Expo in San
Diego.
To better engage student chapter members and recent
graduates, the Chapter Executive Committee approved the
creation of a ffth Member at Large responsible for represent-
ing emerging professionals and connecting with students.
The frst task of this newly elected leader is to liaise with the
FIU Student Chapter and provide FLASLA support as FIU
prepares to host the 2012 LABASH in South Florida, a gather-
ing of landscape architectural students from across North
America and around the globe.
In July, nearly 650 attendees met in Palm Beach at the
beautiful and historic The Breakers resort for the 45th FLASLA
Annual Meeting and Expo highlighted by local tours, educa-
tion sessions, the Chapter Annual Business Meeting with
ASLA President Elect Susan Hatchell, FASLA addressing the
attendees, legislators’ reception, and the Annual Design
Awards Gala.
Landscape Architects, designers, and allied professionals
sprang into action in March with what is unequivocally
the strongest and best coordinated grassroots advocacy
campaign ever executed by the Florida Chapter leadership,
its members, and its friends. On the block was the continued
statutory regulation of over ffty regulated industries includ-
ing landscape architecture. Years of careful planning and
relationship building, swift action, and efective communica-
tion resulted in the removal of Landscape Architects from a
bill that would have opened the practice without regard for
qualifcations, knowledge, or expertise; increased competi-
tion in a challenging economy; and posed a threat to pro-
tecting the health, safety and welfare of the general public.
We thank the members, friends, and landscape design and
allied professionals from across the state who advocated on
behalf of the profession to ensure its continued regulation.
During 2011, the Chapter created the Jefrey Siegel, FASLA,
Leadership Award honoring the legacy and memory of the
two time past chapter president. The award is bestowed at
the discretion of the Chapter’s past presidents recognizing
exceptional leadership of a member or non-member of ASLA
within the landscape architecture community and profes-
sion. Hilton Meadows is the inaugural recipient of this award
for his passion and dedication to the profession.
The Florida Chapter of ASLA remains dedicated to protect-
ing, advancing, and promoting the profession. During the
past two years, the leadership has worked diligently to evalu-
ate and identify programs and processes to strengthen the
Chapter moving forward. We are encouraged by the founda-
tions established and look to a very promising future.
Sincerely,
Kenn Bates, PLA, ASLA
President (2011)
E. J. Bolduc, III, PLA, ASLA
President (2010)

Matt is an associate professor in the School of Planning, Development, Preservation, and Landscape Architecture. He
holds a Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture from West Virginia University and a Master of Landscape Archi-
tecture and Ph.D. in Environmental Design and Planning from Virginia Tech. Prior to entering academia he worked in
landscape architecture and community design in West Virginia, South Carolina, and Virginia. Dr. Powers teaches a range
of studios and seminars focusing on environmental design and research at various scales. His primary research interests
include cognitive-oriented approaches to design pedagogy and the relationship between environmental design and
health disparities. Dr. Powers has extensive experience helping primary and secondary school students create learning
landscapes on their campuses. Dr. Powers and his students have received state and national awards for outstanding

My love for landscape architecture roots from my past profession as a City Planner, coupled with a desire to create new
and sustainable urban environments. After receiving a bachelor’s degree in Urban and Environmental Planning from the
University of Virginia in May 2005, I began working as a City Planner for the City of Hampton. In Hampton, I had several
leadership roles. These roles included programming several community focus groups, engaging and representing the
community and its leaders, as well as reporting to governing ofcials. Additionally, I worked on a number of land use ap-
plications and master plan initiatives. Throughout these processes, obtaining community feedback was essential. Extreme
pleasure was found in working with neighborhood groups and representing a voice that often goes unheard.
Born and raised in Colombia, Karen Harter devotes her time and thought into creating new and innovative designs for
her community. After graduating Magna Cum Laude in the Spring of 2009 with a B.S. in Architecture, she continued her

Throughout his career, Nathaniel Reed has insisted
that public policy decisions must rest on the
foundation of strong science and informed dialog. An
environmental advisor to seven Florida governors from
both political parties, Reed also served as Assistant
Secretary of the Interior under Presidents Richard
Nixon and Gerald Ford. Because of his leadership,
passion and decades of dedicated activism, Mr. Reed
has left an indelible imprint on the local, state, and
national environments.
Mr. Reed was born in New York City, July 23, 1933 and
spent much of his childhood wintering in Hobe Sound,
Florida. He graduated with his B.A. from Trinity College
in 1955, going on to serve as an ofcer in the U.S. Air
Force military intelligence system in Europe, North
Africa and the Middle East until 1959. He returned to
his beloved Hobe Sound in 1960, where he served
as Vice President and then President of the Hobe
Sound Company until 1971. Thanks to his parents’
vision, hundreds of acres of Jupiter Island wilderness
were preserved as this community was developed.
Mr. Reed was actively involved in securing the range
of land donations and sales that created the Nature
Conservancy’s Blowing Rocks Preserve and the Hobe
Sound National Wildlife Refuge, both on Jupiter Island.
In 1967, Republican Gov. Claude R. Kirk, Jr., appointed
Mr. Reed as the state’s frst Governor’s Environmental
Counsel (and the nation’s frst environmental advisor
to a governor), a position he would hold until 1971.
For his considerable work, he accepted compensation
in the amount of $1 per year. According to Michael
Grunwald, Washington Post reporter and author of The
Swamp, “Kirk rarely started out on the green side of an
issue, but thanks to Reed and the new politics of the
environment, he usually ended up there.”
In 1968, construction began on the massive Florida
Jetport sited adjacent to Everglades National Park
The plans were for the largest airport in the world—
encompassing 39 square miles of marshland, with a
HONORARY ASLA
FLORIDA’S 2011 RECIPIENT - NATHANIEL REED
The Florida Chapter is pleased to have nominated Nathaniel Reed to honorary member-
ship. For more than 50 years, Mr. Reed has devoted his time, energy and personal resources
to the protection of the natural environment. As a former Assistant Secretary of the Interior
and environmental advisor to seven Florida governors, his eforts have helped preserve
Florida’s natural systems for future generations to enjoy.
Selected by ASLA’s Board of Trustees, honorary membership is among the highest honors
ASLA may bestow upon non-landscape architects in recognition of notable service to the
profession. Since it’s inception in 1899, ASLA has awarded only 152 honorary memberships.
takeof or landing every 30 seconds. The proposal also
included a high speed rail link to Miami and foresaw
the development of a new community of 150,000
residents. State permits and federal funds were soon
secured for the project, and construction commenced.
Mr. Reed worked to persuade federal ofcials to
permanently halt the project. Even though the U.S.
Department of Transportation and Federal Aviation
Administration supported the project, Mr. Reed
convinced Department of Interior ofcials of the
environmental damage the project would cause. In his
New Year’s Day message, President Nixon’s declared
1970 the year of the environment. Later that month,
Gov. Kirk and Mr. Reed met with President Nixon and
other top administration ofcials, where the President
announced he was withdrawing funding for the
project and signed the Florida Jetport Pact. The remote
jetport site is now used to train airline pilots on takeofs
and landings.
In 1969, Gov. Kirk named Mr. Reed Chair of the new
Department of Air and Water Pollution Control, which
evolved into today’s Department of Environmental
Protection. During his two year tenure, Mr. Reed
chaired extensive hearings across the state to set
water quality standards and create air quality regions
in the state. Mr. Reed soon began ordering industrial
and municipal polluters to treat their waste, urging
communities to raise taxes to fund the sewage
treatment projects. He drafted the state’s water quality
standards, outlawing discharges that would change
the fora or fauna of a receiving body of water.
In 1971, Mr. Reed accepted President Richard Nixon’s
invitation to serve at the national level. Mr. Reed
became Assistant Secretary of the Interior for Fish,
Wildlife and National Parks, a position he would
continue to serve under President Gerald Ford until
1977. In that capacity, Reed played an instrumental role
in banning the use of DDT, before it created a “silent
spring.”
17
Mr. Reed was involved in drafting and passage of one
of the nation’s most broad-reaching environmental
laws, the Endangered Species Act of 1973, serving
as the administration’s main witness before multiple
congressional committees. He also played a leading
role in the protection of Bald and Golden eagles, and
laid the foundation for the Alaska Land Act which
ultimately would preserve over 100 million acres of
national parks, wildlife refuges, and additions to the
national forests.
Upon returning to Florida in 1978, Democrat Governor
Bob Graham appointed Mr. Reed to serve on the South
Florida Water Management District Governing Board,
a highly controversial move as the board at that time
was dominated by sugar and development interests
Gov. Graham would later note, “Nat Reed was the
acknowledged leader of a new wave of Floridians who
fundamentally transformed the environmental culture,
values and public policies of the state from 1967 to the
mid 1970s.” Mr. Reed was subsequently reappointed
by Republican Governor Bob Martinez and Democrat
Governor Lawton Chiles. He served for a total of 14
years.
In 1986, Mr. Reed helped found 1000 Friends of
Florida This statewide, bipartisan, nonproft growth
management “watchdog” was established to oversee
implementation of Florida’s fedgling growth
management act. Mr. Reed traveled the state, giving
numerous presentations on the importance of
Florida’s growth management process and the need
for a “watchdog.” He raised major funding to launch
the fedgling organization and continues to play a
signifcant role in raising funds for 1000 Friends to this
day. When Florida’s growth management act came
under serious attack in 1988, Mr. Reed testifed before
the House, calling the act “Florida’s last great hope to
plan a future.”
Nathaniel Reed was a founding member of the
Everglades Foundation, an infuential not-for-proft
organization created in 1993 and “dedicated to
advancing an understanding of the Greater Everglades
Ecosystem and its irreplaceable environmental and
economic value.” He currently serves as its Vice
Chair.
It is difcult to summarize Mr. Reed’s myriad
accomplishments in just two pages. Over the last half
century he has been instrumental in some of the most
signifcant and far-reaching legislation to protect the
environment and quality of life in Florida and, indeed,
the nation. Thanks to his visionary leadership, millions
of acres of pristine Florida lands have been forever
protected, an emerald necklace of greenways crosses
our state, damaging and ill-conceived boondoggles
have been halted, and water quality has improved.
To this day, Mr. Reed continues his lifelong crusade
to protect the iconic Everglades ecosystem, promote
regionalism, and encourage the sane and sensible
management of growth in this state.

Roy S. Rood (December 13, 1918 - October 8, 2011) was
particularly infuential on the lives of many landscape
architects during his distinguished career. Thanks in
part to his advocacy; Florida was one of the frst states
to legislate the regulation of landscape architecture; a
national trend that continues 45 years later.
For landscape architects, Roy is well known by his
record:
• Advocating for the regulation of landscape archi-
tecture in Florida, and leading others in FNGLA to
do the same.
• Mentoring and guiding young people to become

Roy Rood served as FNGLA president in 1958-59. He
has been honored with the association’s highest award,
the Wendell E. Butler award, and has been inducted in
FNGLA’s Hall of Fame.  Roy Rood is such a believer in
FNGLA, he continues to recruit members even today,
and will publically guarantee anyone who joins and
doesn’t think they got their money’s worth to come
see him, and he will personally pay them back the
amount of the dues. He will then say, “I’ve been ofer-
ing that guarantee since 1958 and have yet to have
anyone come for a refund!” 
Often, Roy shared his pride; being in the top four of
the Jupiter High School class of 1936. Of course there
were only fve in the class Just days after graduation,
Roy went to work with Elijah Mayo building shell roads
on Jupiter Island. Their three yard truck needed to be
loaded and unloaded by hand. Some of those roads
still exist today. In October of the same year, for twenty
cents an hour, Roy went to work for the well estab-
lished Wilson’s Palm Garden. After just three years, and
getting a nickel raise, he knew it was time to move
onward.
HONORARY ASLA
FLORIDA’S 2010 RECIPIENT - ROY SCHALLER ROOD
The Florida Chapter is pleased to have nominated Roy Schaller Rood to honorary member-
ship. As a founding member of the Florida Nursery, Growers and Landscape Association, Mr.
Rood laid the foundation of an allied association that continues to support ASLA’s mission
of balancing the built and natural environments. He is revered as one of the early leaders of
the landscape industry in Florida. Nearly every person in the Florida’s green industries can
proudly trace their professional pedigree back to Mr. Rood.
Selected by ASLA’s Board of Trustees, honorary membership is among the highest honors
ASLA may bestow upon non-landscape architects in recognition of notable service to the
profession. Since it’s inception in 1899, ASLA has awarded only 152 honorary memberships.
The next step up Roy’s ladder of success led him into
horticulture, working for Beeman Dawes, part of a
prominent family on Jupiter Island. He managed and
maintained the 13 acre property, and oversaw the
three other employees. Beeman Dawes was the Chair-
man of the board for Purell Oil. His brother Henry was
the president of Purell oil, Rufus was the president of
the First National Bank in Chicago, and their brother
Charles was the vice president of the United States un-
der Calvin Coolidge. Mrs. Dawes was an avid gardener,
and this is where Roy got his education in roses and
natural fertilizers.
December 7, 1941 “a day that would live in infamy”
changed Roy’s life. Roy heard of the attack on Pearl Har-
bor while playing tennis with Nat Reed who currently
serves as vice chairman of the Everglades Foundation.
A week later at the age of 22, Roy enlisted in the Navy.
After completing aviation mechanics training, Roy was
chosen to instruct in Jacksonville and did so until 1944.
Through the remainder of the war, Roy manned the
USS Hollandia, an oil tanker converted into an aircraft
carrier. Based in San Diego, the ship traveled the globe,
supplying the feet with fuel and aircraft. Too often,
the ship navigated through dark waters loaded with
a million and a half gallons just below the deck. By
the end of the war, Roy was an aviation mate frst class
and acting Chief Petty Ofcer. His commander was Lt
George Rumsfeld; Donald Rumsfeld’s father.
Proud daughter, Vanessa Rood Mortenson, and Roy S. Rood.

In October of 1945, the 27 year old veteran hitchhiked
leisurely around the states for seventy days; “loafng of”
as he would put it. Finding his way home to Jupiter,
Roy with $300 and an old Pontiac coupe with a rumble
seat, purchased a wheel barrow, shovels, rakes, a pick,
and a crosscut saw to start Rood Landscape. The saw
hangs in Roods ofce today. By 2001, there were 128
employees.
For $700 dollars, Roy bought his frst truck, a new 1946
Ford. Roy would work in the Stuart, Jupiter, Jupiter
Island area from 7 to 4 and then trek to Delray to
purchase plants for the next day. With the business
ever expanding Roy went to NJ to buy an army surplus
truck. None were available so instead he bought four
pieces of heavy equipment brought them back to
Florida and traded for a 2½ ton truck. In 1948 and
1949, South Florida experienced very bad storms; do-
ing great damage to Jupiter Island. Roy’s frst truck, by
then converted into a crane, was sorely needed in the
cleanups, and catapulted Rood Landscape into a much
larger business enterprise. His late wife Patricia and he
had two children Vanessa and Nelson.
In May 1952, Roy and a group of other foliage growers
and nurserymen met at an annual convention in Key
Biscayne. There, they elected to break away, and form
the Florida Nursery and Growers Association (FNGA,
now FNGLA). To seal the deal they all met again; every-
one put up $100, and voted in a president. They started
with less than 100 members.
While nurturing a business, Roy Rood gave back to his
industry and community in many ways. Most notable
are:
• 1947 Roy helped found the American Legion Post,
and was its frst commander. The post is in part
named after Roy’s Brother Homer who lost his life
on Anzio Beach
• 1954 Roy with help started the Jupiter Hobe Sound
Kiwanis club
• 1959 Roy was the FNGA state president. He was
also the Palm Beach Chapter president which was
the frst chapter to host a FNGA state convention
• 1959 Roy was instrumental in founding Kiwanis
Park.
Along his incredible journey, people have recognized
Roy’s meaningful contributions:
• Roy has been the recipient of countless awards
in the landscaping industry, FNGLA, and his com-
munity.
• Roy was honored in 1988 with the National Land-
scape award for the Gardens Mall Project. Barbara
Bush presented him with the award.
• FNGLA has renamed its most prestigious land-
scape award, the Roy S. Rood Award.
Florida ASLA member Elizabeth Gillick recalls working
for Roy in 1977-1979. “His depth of knowledge of the
horticultural aspects of our profession and his ongoing
commitment to high quality standards stands out …
Roy’s sense of design and his respect, in his contract-
ing capacity, for proper and accurate installation while
respecting the design intent of landscape architects is
a quality that seemed so right …. I learned much from
Roy during our professional association and in observa-
tions of his work…”

WEST 8 URBAN DESIGN & LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE P.C.
NEW YORK, NEW YORK
Miami Beach Soundscape announces itself as the fnal
component of the City Center Redevelopment Project add-
ing three-acres of green space that replaces a surface-level
parking lot. Its proximity to some of Miami Beach’s largest
historical and civic institutions and cultural amenities and its
immediate relationship to the New World Symphony (NWS)
Campus make the Park an important venue for the City, and
a destination and gathering place for residents and visitors
alike. The design team was tasked with designing a space
that would support a host of programmatic demands, along
with the expectation to deliver a “world-class” urban park.
Responding to these programmatic demands, the design
team urged for this public space to be ‘green’, shaded, and
feels more like a park. By day, the Park design encourages
relaxing, meeting friends, and is a welcoming crossroads
between the site’s adjacent destinations. After dark the Park
is transformed into a spectacle of video, art, music, and flm.
Civic events such as Art Basel, Film Festivals, street perform-
ers, and other uses encourage Park use at all hours. The Park
is a one-of-a-kind destination, celebrates Miami’s euphoric
23
vitality, is a place to “see and be seen”, and delivers a
unifed expression of music, landscape, and experi-
ence.
A family of architectural elements was created to in-
corporate audio and video equipment throughout the
park – the Ballet Bar, the Projection Tower, and Media
Hydrants. The prime listening area of the Park faces the
wall screen – NWS’ exterior façade - and has space for
nearly 1,000 to watch and listen to simulcast concerts,
flms, commissioned video art, city-provided content,
and digital installations. The design team housed 160
professional quality speakers in two simple ‘Ballet Bars’;
providing immersive sound and defning the limits of
the viewing area. The ‘Projection Tower’ is a unique, ele-
vated and accessible enclosure that faces the NWS pro-
jection wall and houses four HD projectors. The tower
stands 40 feet tall and provides unimpeded views
through the park. Four ‘Media Hydrants’ are strategically
located throughout the Park and conceal additional
speakers and audio and data processing equipment.
These service points extend the Park’s programmatic
capabilities for smaller groups of performers, civic and
cultural afairs, and other public events.
Connections are made to the Park’s of-site destina-
tions via a mosaic pattern of pathways that respond to
its location at the crossroads of two major City streets.
The network of connected pathways is based on shift-
ing views through the Park and elicits the feeling of a
Park larger than its size. Varying path widths of white
concrete distinguish a hierarchy of circulation, and help
to refect heat; contributing to the Park’s ambition for
a micro-climate that allows for use year-round. Subtle to-
pography transforms the previous asphalt parking surface
into a gracefully undulating ‘sea of green’, greatly increas-
ing the site’s porosity. Topography was a driving force in
the park’s design to create a sequence of micro-spaces.
White precast concrete seating walls ofer opportuni-
ties for relaxing or socializing throughout the Park. The
wall heights ebb and fow with the site’s grade changes
and are thoughtful of sightlines, orientation, exposure,
pedestrian points of intersection, and program. Integral
skateboard deterrents -‘pebbles’ - are a unique, simple,
and robust solution to the City’s concerns.

Vision 360 is home to a global training ministry prepar-
ing ministers to go out and start new churches. The
project is surrounded by pristine upland forest and
wetlands making this the perfect site to achieve the
Client’s desire for a pastoral and serene setting. Mag-
nifcent saved Live Oak trees received early arboricul-
ture and became the backbone for the site’s gardens
and landscape concepts. This project was 100% gifted
by the Landscape Architect and Landscape Contractor.

The Davids garden is an imaginative study on what can
be planted in the toughest of Bahamian beachfront
elements. Water creates linkage within the landscape,
by lapping the sea lavender-draped shoreline, spilling
from the infnity edge pool and refecting the sculpted
overhanging rock formations of the entry garden
streams. The Landscape Architect utilized the entire
site as well as the borrowed beachfront landscape to
create a visual and an auditory garden dialogue.

Transit plays an integral role in urban planning and
directly impacts a community’s success. In this assign-
ment, the landscape architects were a vital partner
in determining station suitability for transit stations
along the 85-mile urban corridor of a metropolitan
region through a process of inventory and analysis and
set forth the framework for redevelopment through
the development of design guidelines for station and
transit oriented development.

This beautiful “California-Mission” style home was
transformed into a creatively designed landscape with
interactive courtyards and living spaces with views of
a 700 acre lake. Upon entering the driveway, tailored,
asymmetrical planters and fanking walls set the scale
for this patterned, “work of art” pavement area. The
outdoor dining area incorporates an outdoor fre place,
overhead trellis system, and adequate plant material
to accomplish the privacy needed next to the adjacent
two-story neighbor’s home. A raised grass terrace
completes the waterfront setting with a destination
point for lounging or to observe maximum views from
the property.

The Valletta Waterfront development conserved a
500-year-old waterfront in the Grand Harbour in
Valletta while helping the country of Malta capture
a larger share of the tourism market. The landscape
architect’s design contributions and ability to un-
derstand global cultures resulted in a revitalized and
vibrant waterfront that enhanced the local’s quality of
life, while also increasing cruise ship tourism by nearly
500%. In doing so the historical value of the environ-
ment was enhanced.

COLÓN: COLLECTIVE STRATEGIES FOR A REGENERATIVE WATERFRONT
2011 AWARD OF HONOR | STUDENT
The interest of the research is the roll of individual
perception and collective space in highly complex
urban environments: the relationships between culture
and the built environment and its impact on society,
with special interest in the roll of the young popula-
tion. The project is developed in the city of Colón, the
second city of Panamá, and one of the most important
commercial ports of the Caribbean Sea, yet since the
late 1960s, Colón has been in serious economic and
social decline.

The intervention of the Ludlam Trail seeks to create
a community space by superimposing a transect of
south Florida’s rural fabric within the urban context.
Through a composition of community gardens,
members of the adjacent communities are able to
interact, learn and reap from the varied functions of
the gardens. The roofs of adjacent buildings are used
to introduce rooftop garden and cafes, while function
as water harvesting units to irrigate the ground level
gardens.

This design promotes unique perspectives to chal-
lenge a vehicular centered community to realize the
value of a walkable, sustainable and diverse environ-
ment through topographical alterations and circula-
tion-focused proposals. Adhering to the needs of the
community, a hierarchal system encourages move-
ment through an urban trail while also allowing for
moments of quiet observation and stillness. A stitch-
ing efect is created to help reconnect a fragmented
community and promote each quadrants unique
characteristics.

graphical characteristics of the site were foremost. The
community is designed around stormwater efciency
while also incorporating functionality to create a
sinuous weaving of nature and civilization. Accepting
diverse demographical housing types and ofering
a multitude of available social interactions create a
strong sense of place and a very livable community.
