Since we’re a general practice our clients come from many fascinating backgrounds. When we design a library or museum we know the owner will demand a creative solution. But we like to bring a fresh outlook to all our buildings, whether we’re working on a fire station or a baseball clubhouse. Typically this starts with recording the client’s goals and needs and documenting specialized requirements—and with getting to know the site. Consultant teams are carefully selected when necessary to complement our own range of design services.
- A monumental civic plaza in Worlds Fair Park which displays the names of all fallen veterans from East Tennessee since World War I. The granite steles also commemorate Medal of Honor recipients from the area. The Memorial evokes both an outdoor chapel and a military cemetery. The monuments are designed to unlock emotions with words, sounds and tactility. Go to www.etvma.org for additional information. Landscape architecture consultant: Ross/Fowler
