4th and Main Street Park

This project was a design competition entry for the renovation of a small park in downtown Evansville. The program called for a performance space and event lawn. Special features of this design include a custom stage with solar footlights and a curvilinear "Green Screen" curtain (a contemporary trellis planted with semi-evergreen flowering vines). Additional features include a water fountain at the park's entry and a sculpture grotto built into the existing topography in the far corner of the park. Proposed seat walls surround the perimeter of the park with an allée of crape myrtles behind the walls. The seat walls are inspired by Alice Keck Park in Santa Barbara, CA and function not only to provide extra seating, but also to visually separate the park from the hustle and bustle of Main Street. The crape myrtle allée is inspired by Bryant Park in New York City and by Pershing Park in Washington D.C. The singular species of trees creates a sense of character and identity for the park that is separate from the mix of species found on Main Street and announces arrival to a place that is special and a little bit removed from the typical city block. This design was done during my tenure with Combs Landscape: www.combslandscape.com
