Green Army Plaza

Description

Existing traffic lanes are covered with a green embankment — similar to the berms but larger and reinforced — that conceals vehicular tunnels. This new green public space becomes a formal curved promenade.

Features

  • berms expanded to conceal vehicular tunnels
  • open lawn areas provide space for a variety of activities
  • formal, curved promenade
  • pedestrian pathways radiate out from Plaza center
