“The not so hidden purpose of the park is to introduce outstanding contemporary landscape architecture to the 20,000 conference visitors who may not know what landscape architects really do – almost a Landscape Architecture 101 or 201”
Located at ABX, the pavilion features a forest of trees constructed from 2 x 4 lumber, a lawn of soft artificial turf, a tensile structure leaf canopy, custom concrete petal benches and moveable furniture. Like a park, it is a place to hang out, meet friends, charge your phone (ride a bike) and other leisure activities.
The park is organized into three zones:
- The Central Lawn is a place to relax and enjoy
- The Charging Peloton hosts a fleet of stationary bikes to charge your phone while exercising.
- The Presentation Lounge provides a venue for quick 10-minute landscape architecture talks by the upcoming landscape architects, as well as a continuous landscape architecture slide show.
