Our landscape design for the project’s open space creates a “forum” for these interventions, sited to be accessed and visible from the street, while creating a “livable” space for people on the street. Along NE 2nd Avenue, large shade and flowering trees, planted in tipped, corten steel planters, double as site furniture, and are sited to create an informal asymmetrical balance of street furniture and movement. To stay true to the neighborhood character, our design incorporates the material and historical products made and found in the Wynwood District: Steel, re-bar, metal cans, glass bottles, and distressed concrete. Each of the four primary spaces: two streetscapes, one pedestrian passage, and one vehicular/pedestrian passage incorporates these local materials in various ways to create their own unique, spatial environments.
