Project: Embassy Park, Waltham MA
The redesign of a civic park at the center of downtown Waltham MA. Wining competition entry.
Designed in collaboration with Landscape Architect and Horticulturalist Lili Herrera, the design recalls the historic natural elements and industrial past of the American town. The connection to the river, both in its natural form and historic use to power a mill then later the electric grid is a powerful presence on the land, remembered in the new design.
Through subtle and not so subtle moves to increase flow, circulation and exploration in the small pocket park, the design creates a new civic space where the public communicate and live together.
