SHALLOW SHORES

Approaching the Edge: Reconsidering the Littoral Great Lakes Symposium and Exhibition Critic Karen Lutsky Team Shallow Shores Studio (small group and individual investigation) Date Autumn 2014 Duration 4 weeks Location Saginaw Bay, Michigan

Shallow Shores takes an in-depth look into the Saginaw Bay, a 1,143 square mile shallow bowl carved along Michigan’s Lake Huron shoreline. The bay’s flat, gradual bathymetry, which calms water movement and promotes sediment build up, has helped establish an edge condition that supports the country’s largest contiguous freshwater marsh. At 40,000 acres, this marshland, while impressive in size, is unfortunately only a third of the estimated 115,000 acres that used to exist in the Bay. Established as one of the EPA’s largest AOC (Areas of Concern) in 1987, the Saginaw Bay and River have been the focus of many a rehabilitation efforts. Almost thirty years later, the Bay has yet to be declared environmentally ‘safe.’ While industry and development initially ate away the marshland, recent low water levels have begun to uncover new territory in the Bay. Seemingly a promising opportunity to reinstate lost marsh acreage, the new re-emergent land along with the majority of the coastal marshes are now largely defined by a singular species; Phragmites australis (phragmites). This type of phragmites is a nonnative, invasive species. Irradication techniques such as mowing, burning, and pesticide spraying have been implemented with minimal success. Understanding the coastal edge as one of the most acute points of interaction between people and the water and a direct reflection of our society’s priorities within the Great Lakes, we as designers are in a wonderful position to renegotiate this coastal monoculture. This investigation examines and attempts to reconsider the potentials of this coastal edge, while understanding the ecological and site systems that have helped create it.

CONTAINING A MONOCULTURE OSU 100 Year Alumni Exhibition Selection Critic Karen Lutsky Teammate John Wischmeyer Date Autumn 2014 Duration 10 weeks Location Saginaw Bay, Michigan

Containing a Monoculture looks at the changing coastline of the Saginaw Bay as Phragmites australis continues to spread its roots. In a fifteen year period phragmites has taken hold of the bay’s shallow waters and formed a 15’ high and 3000’ deep wall between land and water. While locals struggle with the change, this project aims to help them appreciate the wilderness in their backyards while simultaneously providing a space for scientists to research this aggressive reed. This project sets up a flexible framework that can adapt to the changing shoreline and give the vast space a readable scale. On the ground a mown path allows researchers to travel between test plots, and above ground a pedestrian bridgeway provides visitors with a range of experiences within and above the phragmites. The upper and lower paths intersect at the nodal structures. The structures are a means of vertical access as well as storage, classrooms, offices, meeting spaces, and research facilities. This system of paths provides views, access, observation, and a new place for recreation as two seemingly separate worlds collide.

WASTE(d) WATERFRONT Critic Katherine Bennett Date Autumn 2015 Duration 15 weeks Location Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Wasted Waterfront looks at the southern shore of the Ohio River in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Pittsburgh is characterized by its three rivers, yet much of the population turns its back to this asset due to perceptions of contaminated water. This project looks at the waterfront through the lens of excrement: the excrement overflowing into the river through the combined sewer system, the excrement illegally dumped along the shore creating an unknown, irregular bathymetry, and the under-utilized land excrement on Pittsburgh’s steep slopes and post-industrial lands. The studio created a network of interconnected sites, forming a waterfront stretch. My site design focused on a piece of land wedged between Chartiers Creek, CSX rail lines and steep topography, cutting it off from its surroundings. A power line corridor bisects the site, creating an otherworldly vegetation situation as the woods are abruptly cut into a hedge condition on either side of the corridor. The design goals include: amplify the existing site conditions, encourage and maintain an early successional woody habitat, reveal the movement of excrements above, below, on, and within the site, and create access for low-income neighborhoods (Sheraden and McKees Rocks) to waterfront and into industrial fourth nature, so people can experience a wilderness within their urban environment.

CLEVELAND GROUP PLAN Glimcher Seminar and Exhibition with GGN Critic Jake Boswell, Shannon Nichol, Jennifer Guthrie Team Member Lauren McCrystal Date Spring 2015 Duration 8 weeks Location Cleveland, Ohio

Major transportation routes and event centers have bisected the Cleveland Mall since the inception of the Cleveland Group Plan in 1903. The railroad, interstate highway, stadium, and museum centers were once thought of as a way to bring people into the city, but ultimately, they function as a way to bring people through the city. Not only do these structural conduits act as physical and visual barriers between the mall and Lake Erie, but also have heavy implications in the development, growth, and sustenance of the city as a whole. Transportation routes form connections for Cleveland on a regional scale, but serve a boundary on a local scale. The first drawing is a study of the interstitial space between the mall and the lake shore. It takes on a temporal sense of Cleveland since its founding in the early 19th century through today. The identified barriers stitch the drawing back together. In the second drawing we are proposing a shift from an emphasis on the regional economy with freight, highways, and event centers to a better defined neighborhood scale. Because downtown has been positioned as a destination instead of a place for living, it does not currently possess the amenities needed for a desirable place to live. With better connectivity on the local scale and a new approach to land use, the Cleveland Mall can be the epicenter of a thriving community. The Cleveland Mall neighborhood can transition from a destination in passing to a place to stay.

NO/LEX_NEW ORLEANS LAND EXCHANGE Critic Jake Boswell Date Spring 2015 Duration 15weeks Location New Orleans, Louisiana

Post Katrina New Orleans retains a vast network of vacant lands. To move to a future in which communities make strategic decisions about the work they want vacant land to perform, we propose the New Orleans Land EXchange (NO/LEX). This site-planning framework is designed to maximize local government’s ability to protect public health and safety by effectively shifting the use of abandoned properties from tax deficiencies into productive lands. NO/LEX is aimed at connecting individual vacant lots to become components in functional service networks. The framework does so by revealing and enabling the connection between multiple vacant lots. Constellations of small parcels can perform important landscape functions, and assembling such networks gives the individual lots productive capacity beyond their spatial boundaries. Through visual development and negotiation simulations we created a lexicon of uses for this vacant land as well as an ever-expanding list of possible stakeholders open to land acquisition. I took on the persona of Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans for my land acquisition and site design challenge. This project aims to create a network of water retention plots to alleviate stress put on New Orleans’ pumping stations during rain events. The water gardens overlay public space, vegetation, and maximum water retention over minimal surface to create community assets.

Negotiation Simulation A series of negotiation simulations were held to better understand the interaction between community stakeholders, provide a means for vacant land to be obtained and for stakeholders to form relationships. As a studio we developed ‘game pieces and boards’ to facilitate these negotiations. The game pieces aided stakeholders in understanding their options. Accumulation Use Cards (next page) I developed a series of use cards describing how vacant land could be utilized for an array of accumulated material, ranging from compost, to construction waste, to dredge material. Use cards describe time constraints for land acquisition and spatial needs depending on elevation zones within New Orleans.

GEOTUBE DEWATERING

GEOTUBE DEWATERING

Compost Windrows provide space for large amounts of organic waste to be deposited from residents, businesses, parks, construction projects, etc. The windrows vary in size depending on their composition and available land. For example, windrows of autumn leaves should typically be about 8 feet tall and 16 feet wide at the base, while a windrow of grass clippings mixed with leaves will need to be considerably smaller, usually about 5 feet high and 10 feet wide. The length of the rows varies depending on lot size. Windrows are more labor intensive that compost bins, but they supply much more compost. Composting sends less waste to landfills, and also creates a resource to be sold, used for community gardening, or distributed back to the contributors.

GEOBAG STACKING

GEOBAG STACKING Geotubes allow for passive dewatering of dredge material, which, once dewatered, can be used for earth building, construction fill, or construction material. Dredge is pumped directly into geotubes where the surface acts as a filter, allowing water to flow through the micromesh. This process requires a refined slurry-thickening agent, but can be a cost-effective way to rapidly dewater contaminated sediments. Once the tube is filled, it is allowed to dry for several days, and then the sediments can be used beneficially. The geotubes can be refilled until full.

Geotubes are essentially a large bag made of geosynthetic material often used for dewatering of dredge material. The units can be stacked to form erosion structures and berms while keeping material mobile. Geotubes come in a variety of sizes to fit any project, the most common being 3x3, 6x6, 10x15, and 15x15. They can also be mounted in mobile roll off containers that can be transported around the property.

Odor control is a primary concern when composting, particularly in residential areas. Compost biofilters are often the least expensive and most effective odor treatment option. According to Cornell Composting, “a biofilter uses moist organic materials to adsorb and then biologically degrade odorous compounds. Cooled and humidified compost process air is typically injected through a grid of perforated pipes into a bed of filtration media.” A 1 - 1.5 m deep bed is dug into the earth and covered with a layer of gravel beneath the

PROVISIONAL FOREST Critic Kristy Cheramie Date Spring 2014 Duration 6 weeks Location Columbus, Ohio

The Provisional Forest looks at a former brownfield site along the Scioto River and implements a provisional forest of poplars in its place as both a resource, form of soil remediation, and cultural demonstration. This fast growing tree was chosen to represent the fleeting moments of the site’s history that leave behind memories despite erasure efforts. Saplings are neatly planted in grids across the entire site. Different spacing ranging from 5’ O.C. to 30’ O.C. inscribes future instructions for cutting into the design. Groups of trees are cut for lumber and fuel at predetermined times and their stumps are left as a memory. After each tree cutting a celebration takes place in which people camp, perform, build, and create memories within the forest. Post-celebration a simulated reforestation is implemented as wind driven seed dispersal poles are attached to the remaining stumps, allowing a ‘natural’ process to take place through an anthropocentric device. This project aims to demonstrate humans influence over the ‘natural’ world.

Allow the trees to grow. Carefully manicure the surrounding prairie grass and harvest each fall.

Cut a different area of trees every five years. The areas are predetermined by the site’s past use, and similar areas can be read through the initial spacing of trees. The trees planted in industrial sites that are still visible are spaced the closest and are INDETERMINATE therefore cut first.

Commemorate the fallen trees with a cultural event. Every five years after each cutting a week-long celebration takes place in the newly cut spaces. The remaining tree stumps become foundations for temporary stages and buildings that are built from the recently cut lumber on site.

THE AGORA

ULI Gerald D. Hines Competition Honorable Mention (5-15/163) Critic Jason Kentner Teammates Devin Carothers, Stephanie Sang-Delgado, Matt Johnson, Ryan Skubic Date Spring 2014 Duration 2 weeks Location Nashville, Tennessee

In ancient Greece, the agora was the mixed use marketplace at the bottom of the Acropolis, setting the standard for creating community and encouraging social interactions. It was the junction of everyday life stimulating athletics, education, culture, economics, and awareness of the living environment. The Agora on Sulphur Dell is Nashville’s pivotal district to create a healthy city. The Agora will fill the gap between Downtown and Northeast Nashville’s most dynamic neighborhoods, Germantown and Hope Gardens, acting as a catalyst to the region. The interaction between the surrounding historic neighborhoods and the oncethriving industrial area will create a connection between the CBD and the redeveloping urban periphery. The Agora’s design is influenced by the Dell, a 7-acre park sitting on the Cumberland River that provides space for recreation, research and relaxation. Unlike Nashville’s other riverfront parks, the Dell naturalizes the flood plain as a flood friendly area while creating a unique public space for residents and visitors to enjoy. The parks multi-use programing allows for secondary uses such as mussel and fishery research habitats in partnership with Tennessee State University. The park is part of a resilience plan ensuring the sustainability of the Agora. Shifting the traditional street grid in strategic places connects the Dell to Capitol Hill and the new Nashville Ballpark, creating energized public spaces with abundant retail frontage. The angle of the shift between the Capitol and the Dell, forms sight lines that connect the Agora to downtown Nashville. The resulting area to the south of the Dell is an energetic retail core that services the entire community and surrounding area. The Agora’s relation to the historic Sulphur Dell site, its connection to the environment, and its unique urban fabric establish a standard for healthy living.

GOODALE PARK MASTER PLAN Client Goodale Park Team Members Alex Pisha, Tameka Sims Date Summer 2014, Summer 2015 Duration 20 weeks Location Columbus, Ohio

In 1851 Dr. Lincoln Goodale gifted “40 acres more or less” of his property to the city of Columbus with the intention it be used as a pleasure ground by the cities inhabitants. Considered to be Columbus’ oldest developed park, Goodale Park is surrounded by the historic Victorian Village neighborhood and the revitalized Short North Arts District. The park has experienced an extremely diverse and colorful history. It has served as a site of a Civil War camp, a menagerie, revival and temperance meetings, croquet parties, strawberry festivals, and has survived numerous controversies. However, Goodale Park has endured and remains an oasis of tranquility and beauty within one of the most active districts in Columbus. The Friends of Goodale Community Group sponsored the development of a masterplan to aid in decision making and grant proposals for future projects. The Goodale Park Vision Plan incorporates four key strategy points which are both complimentary and cohesive in regards to their formation and relationship to each other. These strategies encompass the primary elements and spaces which were studied and are intended to function both independently and dependently. The four established strategies intended to ensure the longevity of Goodale Park is as follows: implement strolling loop path and improve existing pathways, articulate space for flexible programming, expand event and leasable space, move Goodale to Goodale Street and improve streetscape.

However, Goodale Park has endured and remains an oasis of tranquility and beauty within one of the most active districts in Columbus.

Dedicated in 1851, Goodale Park is one of the first public parks in the United States, and at approximately 37 acres it was also one of the largest tracts of land to be given for unrestricted public access at that time. Originally conceived as a pleasure ground for the citizens of Columbus, Goodale Park has undergone numerous evolutions regarding its infrastructure, programming, spatial quality, and use. It is a palimpsest of Victorian notions of leisure, mid-20th century concepts of vehicular access, and contemporary responses to urban revitalization.

GOODALE PARK HISTORY, 1851-PRESENT

Goodale Park is one of the most historically significant public green spaces within Columbus. Not only is it Columbus’ first developed park, it is also indicative of the concepts which were shaping people’s attitudes towards parks and greenspace during the 19th century, particularly in regard to urban space and the role of recreation.

The Goodale Park Vision Plan Open House provided the Columbus community an opportunity to view the planning and design work that the Vision Plan team had created. The team did not view this event as a culmination exhibition, but rather a forum where ideas could be generated which would have a direct impact on the direction that the Vision Plan took. This gallery-style exhibit encouraged the community to view the proposed concepts and voice their opinion. It also allowed the team to receive more indepth feedback from the public regarding their perceptions of Goodale Park and the Vision Plan.

The project team initially sought to gain a full understanding of Goodale Park in its current and historic states before offering suggestions for the Goodale Park Vision Plan. The above diagrams illustrate the current site furnishings, tree cover, topography, and surrounding conditions of Goodale Park, as well as how some of these conditions affect the ways in which the park is currently used.

Analysis

3

Goodale Park is situated within a unique site context. It must strike a balance between being a lively urban greenspace as well as a serve an adjacent, primarily residential neighborhood. The west and north edge of the park is bounded almost solely by large, single-family residences. Whereas the east edge is bordered by both multifamily residential and cultural institutions. This is vastly different than the south edge of Goodale Park which is bordered by I-670, one of the most heavily trafficked vehicular corridors and provides access to the Columbus city center. These varying edge conditions helped to reinforce the Vision Plan teams notion that each of Goodale Parks edges must be addressed individually and not as a standard concept to be applied towards all edges.

STRATEGY 2 Articulate flexible space for active and passive programming Strategy 2 aims to create defined spaces for both active and passive activities to take place. The East Lawn, enveloped by a 1/4 mile walking/event path, will act as Goodale Park’s front yard. It provides an articulated space for large events. On the other hand, the West Lawn will house the existing kickball fields as well as bring more park users to the southwest corner of the park for passive activities. Each of these spaces are connected via the loop path.

PARK STREET PEDESTRIAN GATE

GOODALE PLAZA

The Park Street gate is currently the primary vehicular entrance to the park. As such, it is not pedestrian-friendly and it isolates numerous areas of the park. The Vision Plan seeks to relocate the vehicular entrance to align with Poplar Avenue and make the Park Street gate a pedestrian-only entry. Green strips will help provide a buffer between vehicular traffic on Park Street and pedestrian traffic along the sidewalk. In addition, as one of the most active edges of Goodale Park, the sidewalks along Park Street would get expanded to allow for improved accessibility.

The bronze bust of Dr. Lincoln Goodale is currently a somewhat nondescript element within the park. Our Vision Plan seeks to transform it into a key moment along the strolling loop path. The plaza expansion would help to distinguish this space from the other moments along the strolling loop path and allow for large-scale events to take place and provide increased space for existing events such as ComFest.

STRATEGY 3 Expand event and leasable space

Grasscrete Pathway

When compared to similar Columbus City Parks such as Schiller and Whetstone, Goodale’s facilities are lacking. Strategy 3 aims to bring more leasable space to Goodale Park while improving the Shelterhouse and Goodale Plaza. Expanded gardens, restroom facilities, and larger terraces will allow larger private events to take place in the park. The plan also envisions a Picnic Terrace at the site of the current central tennis courts. This venue will serve as a profitable park element while also bringing more visitors into the park for family friendly gatherings. In addition to strengthening Goodale’s identity as Columbus’s Art Park, these spaces will help maintain Goodale Park status as one of Columbus’s more beloved pleasure grounds.

TENNIS COURTS These courts will remain as an existing amenity to the park with improvements to their surroundings. Stepped seating will provide a viewing and relaxation space for the tennis courts and would be composed of both softscape and hardscape. A grasscrete path as well as a boxwood hedge would further define the tennis courts while also improving accessibility to the courts and nearby parking lot. The Vision Plan sees this space as being one which could be activated year-round such as an ice-rink in the winter season.

WEST LAWN

WEST LAWN

The West Lawn Loop would help to define this corner of Goodale Park. Our transformation of this space would include a defined path which would enclose the West Lawn. Also, additional vegetation would be incorporated to help further screen the park from the auditory and visual pollution of I-670.

The existing lawn is poorly defined and is rarely used outside of the rare organized activity. The Vision Plan considers the West Lawn to be one of the more flexible spaces within Goodale Park. It could be equipped to host both active and passive programming simultaneously.

Picnic Terrace Shelterhouse Event Terrace

The existing Shelterhouse and its surrounding environment provides an opportunity to expand upon Goodale Parks leasable space. With growing pressure for Columbus’ parks to become financially sustainable, the Vision Plan needed to provide a solution to making the park fiscally responsible. Currently, the Shelterhouse can be viewed as an object within the park with no defined front or back. The Vision Plan seeks to provide the Shelterhouse and its surroundings with a defined sequence of spaces. The East Lawn essentially becomes the Shelterhouses front yard with the West Terraces serving as its backyard. Currently, the Shelterhouse has a maximum occupancy of 75 people. However, with the creation of the West Terrace an additional 200 people could be accommodated. The transformation of the east tennis courts into a more usable and flexible space would provide an additional space which could be leased, allowing space for either one large event to occur or multiple smaller events to happen concurrently.

The Vision Plans implementation strategy takes into account the fact that park improvements do not happen at once but typically occur across a wide swath of time and as finances permit. Some elements should occur as a sequence, while others can be implemented alone and without being in conflict with subsequent improvements. By framing the Vision Plans implementation strategy in terms of zones within the park and what pieces comprise those zones, a concise outline of how and when elements would be woven together within the park is achieved. This also allows a simple framework for which improvements and additions can be determined as demand and resources allow.

GOODALE STREET AND PARKLETS The streetscape on Goodale Street is currently vast and unwelcoming to pedestrians. The transformation of this street into a ‘no-outlet’ drive would include head-in parking along the entire route while also opening up the southeast corner of the park by removing existing meters. Rain garden medians will collect water run-off from the street, slow traffic, and scale down the streetscape for pedestrian comfort. The vision plan also utilizes the unused spaces of the Cap, transforming them into parklets in order to activate this neighborhood gateway.

PATH IMPROVEMENT STRATEGY The Vision Plan’s path improvement strategy seeks to reuse much of the existing path network while expanding paths in heavily trafficked areas of the park. This expansion would implement a variety of materials to add hierarchy to the path system. There would also be the construction of new paths, particularly the Strolling Loop and the West Loop.

LIGHTING OPERATION The Lighting Operation Plan seeks to provide a timed lighting scheme that will give park users optimal illumination of the park during evening hours. The community has stated that a number of people use the park to cross into the Short North or the Parks Street Entertainment District. Lights located at park entrances and lights that run along the axis from the corner of Dennison and Buttles to the corner of Park and Goodale will stay illuminated throughout the night. For park users who wish to walk in the park after the closing time of 11pm, motion sensored lights will be located along the Strolling and West Lawn loop as well as lights located around the pond.

INITIAL IRRIGATION PLAN Timed Lighting

Currently Goodale Park has two water connections which under-serve the needs of maintaining a 32 acre park. The initial irrigation plan seeks to layout a dispersed number of irrigation wells, with irrigation lines extending outward to easily access most areas of the park. The diagrams above show the installation of six wells in the park with 18 hose connections.

Motion activated Lighting Continuous Lighting

COMPLETED IRRIGATION PLAN Well Irrigation Line

Following up on the Initial Irrigation Plan an additional six wells will be dug once the park has undergone the development of the Vision Plan. The additional wells will provide connections for sinks within the Picnic Terrace, drinking fountains, as well as additional irrigation for watering plants.

76

EXISTING AND REMOVED PATHS The Vision Plan sought to work within the existing framework of the park and as a result the majority of existing pathways within Goodale Park would be preserved. Major path changes would take place in the East Lawn, stemming from the driveway realignment. The existing park drive will be transformed into a pedestrian pathway and incorporated into the Loop surrounding the East Lawn. In addition, two paths within the East Lawn would be removed to create a more cohesive space. The West Terrace construction calls for the removal of the existing Shelterhouse parking area, and the Sculpture Garden’s mown paths will replace some of the concrete walks.

MOTIVATING PROJECTS

CAPITAL PROJECTS

The Goodale Park Vision Plan includes eight major projects, referred to as the motivating projects. These projects will largely be addressed with donated funds. They will be the driving force in making the vision plan come to fruition. The motivating projects include the following:

Capital Projects are elements that could be incorporated into the park as funds from the city become available as well as grant awards. These projects are largely infrastructure focused and would include the following:

PARK STREET GATE RESTORATION The Park Street Gate is the last remaining historic gate in Goodale Park to be restored. The gate will be transformed into a pedestrian-only park entry and closed to vehicular access to prevent future damage to the gate. A concrete entry plaza will greet visitors as they arrive from Park Street and replace

VEHICULAR DRIVE REALIGNMENT Goodale Park’s driveway will be moved from its current position at the Park Street Gate across from Russell Avenue and realigned with Poplar Avenue to the south.

In addition, the realignment straightens the driveway and allows for less pavement within the park.

readily serviced by park volunteers and reduce the need for outsourced labor and related costs. PATHWAY CONSTRUCTION

GOODALE PLAZA

Much of the existing path system is preserved in the Vision Plan. However, there is a need to improve some of the existing pathways through path expansions as well as construct new pathways.

The existing plaza surrounding the Dr. Lincoln Goodale Memorial is small and uninviting. The Vision Plan aims to transform this space into a destination within the park, as well as a stopping point along multiple park walking loops. The plaza will incorporate the existing memorial bricks and through the expansion of the plaza additional memorial bricks could be added. This space could become a focal point of the East Lawn, especially during park

raingardens, street-tree plantings, median creations, expanded sidewalks, and material changes. These changes would result in improved storm-water management, safer pedestrian and vehicular relationships through street-calming devices, and aesthetic improvements.

SCULPTURE GARDEN Goodale Park’s Sculpture Garden will be situated within lawn space that is currently underused, and will become a strong edge condition separating the parks interior parking and the East Lawn. It will also become a unique experience within the park, allowing visitors to meander through tall, unmowed

The art within the garden could be on loan from public and private institutions and

the intersection of Dennison Avenue and Goodale Street is resolved. The footprint of Goodale Street would slightly bow away from I-670 allowing the southern edge of the park and be regraded at a gentler slope. Goodale Street would terminate in a drop-off loop and provide additional screening from I-670. The majority of the parking would be located here and the amount of parking spaces would be increased.

could follow a set rotation cycle. WEST EVENT TERRACE AND SHELTERHOUSE RENOVATION Construction of the West Terrace and renovations to the existing Shelter House will provide the park with much-needed leasable space. The suggested Shelter House renovations would include the removal of the brick infill walls along the colonnade and be replaced by glass doors in keeping with the Arts and Crafts character of the shelter. The asphalt shingle roof should also be replaced by either slate shingles or Spanish tiles, allowing the ornamental eaves brackets to become once again visible. The West Terrace construction would include parking-lot demolition and preservation of existing vegetation. The terrace proper should be paved in a material other than concrete, ideally flagstone. Additional gardens would also be created to help provide a sense of seclusion within the terrace. PICNIC TERRACE The Picnic Terrace has been envisioned as being both a permanent and temporary space. It could either utilize the existing concrete pad and have new programming pieces laid upon the surface, or it could be partially restructured, recycling some of the primary components. This space would provide needed picnic and gathering space and be comprised of additional park furniture and small-scale lawn sports such as bocce, shuffleboard, and corn-hole. This should become a space where neighbors can meet within the ambiance of a biergarten or courtyard. This is also a potentially leasable space. STROLLING LOOP PATH The Strolling Loop Path is considered part of the parks secondary circulation path system. It could be constructed either gradually or at one time

MULTIPLE EVENTS LAYOUT

depending on interest and funds. As it is primarily intended for leisurely use by both walkers and joggers, it does not need to be heavily structured in the way that the primary circulation paths would be. This path could be comprised of a simple gravel, decomposed granite, or other earthen material. This path is an opportunity to incorporate additional memorial benches along its edge.

The spaces articulated in the Vision Plan allow for multiple events to take place at one time. Such as a Farmer’s Market in the East Lawn and an Antiques Show in the West Lawn.

ENGAGEMENT One of the key principles that drove the formation of the Goodale Park Vision Plan was a commitment towards encouraging the community to participate during the planning process. Goodale Park was conceived as an urban green space for all of Columbus’ citizens to enjoy. As such, in the spirit of the park being a pleasure ground for all, the Vision Plan incorporates numerous ideas which were proposed by the community. Interaction with the general community was achieved via a series of varied and dynamic operations. This included face-to-face inquiries, interactions with the Vision Plan’s online questionnaire, as well as community meetings. Through this process, a significant amount of information regarding current park-users’ needs, desires, and conflicts was obtained. This information helped guide the Vision Plan and allow the community to help create what is to become the framework for the future of Goodale Park. As a result, what follows is a reflection of the opportunities which the citizens of Columbus feel could become realities.

Planning for the Goodale Vision Plan began in June 2014. The project team worked within Goodale Park, observing park users’ habits and conducting surveys to gain a better understanding of how the park is currently functioning. In addition, a Goodale Park Vision Plan MindMixer website was established to gain community feedback on initial ideas, leading to the establishment of a set of project goals at the end of summer 2014. The planning process continued in May 2015 and began the visualization and packaging phases for what has become the Vision Plan document.

By 2000 the gates were in severe disrepair and in 2004 an effort to restore the gates had begun. After a multi-year effort to restore the gates, they were rededicated in 2014.

SITE OBSERVATION The project team sought to gain a better understanding of the park’s users and daily operations by immersing ourselves within the park. Hourly observations were recorded to count park users and record how different spaces were utilized throughout the day and on different days of the week. These observations allowed us to conclude that certain spaces were currently underutilized, while others, such as the peripheral sidewalks, were over-crowded. These observations allowed us to set project goals for the improvement of Goodale Park.

6. Shelter House (c. 1912) Located in the center of Goodale Park, the current Goodale Park Shelter House was built in 1912 and designed by noted local architect Charles L. Inscho. Its design is representative of the then popular Arts and Crafts movement. Originally conceived as two pavilions connected by a columned breezeway, it was determined that the shelter house needed to serve a more year-round function and the breezeway was enclosed in 1974.

5. Charles Benton Flagg Memorial (c. 1907) Located on the east side of Goodale Park, this memorial was dedicated on June 28, 1907 to Charles Benton Flagg and the United Commercial Travelers. Flagg had served as the first Supreme Secretary for the U.C.T., a fraternal organization founded by traveling salesmen. John E. Sater commissioned Thomas Staniland and Company of Dayton, Ohio to complete the memorial. It was moved to the U.C.T. headquarters at 632 North Park Street in 1949 but was finally returned to its original location in Goodale Park on March 21, 2012.

4. Northwest Gate (c. 1899) Located in the northwest corner of Goodale Park, this gate was partially donated to the park by William H. Fish and is commonly referred to as the Fish Gate. Designed by Isabell Terrell, the cornerstone for the gate was laid in 1899 by students from the nearby Hubbard Avenue School. The carved faces which appear around the gate represent the seven ages of man from Shakespeare’s As You Like It (infant, schoolboy, lover, soldier, judge, old age, and finally corpse). An eighth face carved into the gate is that of Dr. Lincoln Goodale.

8. Goodale Park Fountain (c. 2013) This large, multi-tiered fountain was dedicated on May 19, 2013. Friends of Goodale Park commissioned artist Malcolm Cochran in 2005 to create a water feature for the pond. The design references both previous stacked-rock fountains that were located in the park as well as the Sells Brothers Circus whose founding partner, Peter Sells, lived in a home adjacent to the park. This circus was one of the first in the country to use elephants which led to Cochrans decision to crown his work with two elephants spraying water.

The Goodale Park Vision Plan incorporates four key strategy points which are both complimentary and cohesive in regards to their formation and relationship to each other. These strategies encompass the primary elements and spaces which were studied and are intended to function both independently and dependently. The four established strategies intended to ensure the longevity of Goodale Park is as follows:

Strategy 1 aims to work within Goodale Park’s existing path framework to create a better, more walkable path system that encourages park users to experience Goodale within the park instead of on the park’s periphery. The new “Strolling Loop Path” follows the footprint of the historic carriageway. It brings park users to currently underused areas within Goodale, while also allowing walkers and joggers to exercise within the park. Strategy 1 also encompasses existing pavement improvements and expansions.

The Vision Plan seeks to partially restore the carriage loop path that once allowed visitors the chance to leisurely meander through Goodale Park. It will encourage park users to experience Goodale Park from within rather than along the parks periphery. It will also bring park users into underutilized spaces as well as allow both walkers and joggers the chance to exercise within the park.

EAST LAWN

The East Lawn Loop would help to define the primary lawn of Goodale Park. Our transformation of this space would include a defined 1/4 mile path which would enclose the East Lawn. In addition, in order to provide maximum open greenspace, trees that are sickly, or poorly formed would be either removed or replanted in other locations within the park.

The East Lawn is currently poorly defined and is intersected by multiple paths which subdivide the space into too many unusable areas. The vision plan seeks to define the East Lawn and make it the primary space for community events. Additionally, the East Lawn would be able to host multiple events simultaneously, allowing for more passive programming and becoming a more flexible, vibrant space within Goodale Park.

The existing vehicular entrance and drive will be transformed into a pedestrian-only pathway which could be easily programmed to host a variety of events throughout the year. This section would become part of the east lawn loop allowing this space to no longer be isolated from the rest of the park.

SCULPTURE GARDEN The addition of a sculpture garden would provide an amenity that no other park in Columbus has. As the primary gathering space of Columbus’ Arts District, a sculpture garden would also help strengthen Goodale Parks identity as the Art Park within the Arts District. A combination of rotating and permanent pieces would be on display and would provide both visual and experiential interest.

STRATEGY 4 Move Goodale to Goodale Street and improve streetscape Garden Tables

Strategy 4 focuses on Goodale Park’s surrounding cityscape and includes two of the most transformative pieces of the Vision Plan. The first piece involves the closing of Goodale Street. This opens up the south end of the park for more pedestrian friendly activities and removes some major pedestrian-vehicular conflict points. We envision a scaled down streetscape at the intersection of Park and Goodale and the incorporation of the vacant overpass plazas into Goodale Park. The second major move in Strategy 4 is the shift of the interior park driveway to align with Poplar Ave. This also reduces a major pedestrian-vehicular conflict point. In addition, Strategy 4 aims to improve the streetscape of Park Street and make it more of a connection between Goodale Park and Downtown Columbus.

WEST EVENT TERRACES

The existing central tennis court is under-utilized, particularly since there are already tennis courts on the west edge of the park. The Vision Plan seeks to transform this space into a lively outdoor gathering space for families to play games, grill, and reconnect. The existing play surface could be recycled and transformed into crushed gravel to create a permeable surface while part of the existing play surface could also be re-purposed as gaming courts such as shuffleboard lanes. Permanent structures such as a large grill island, pergola, and wash facilities would help make this a destination within the neighborhood.

The existing Shelterhouse parking area would be transformed into a well-defined usable space. The West Terrace will provide additional leasable space and is large enough to host a maximum of 200 guests. This expansion would be flexible enough to host small gatherings as well as large events. The terraces would utilize both hardscape and softscape to define both large spaces as well as smaller, more intimate spaces.

PARK & GOODALE INTERSECTION

The Vision Plan seeks to restore Goodale Street as a key piece of the parks infrastructure. By closing Goodale Street to through traffic this resolves the highly dangerous intersection of Goodale Street and the I-670 offramp. Key elements such as the creation of a vegetated roundabout, rain garden medians to create a boulevard condition, and the activation of parklets will serve as a more fitting threshold condition to Columbus’ oldest park. The amount of parking spaces will be comparable to its present capacity and will be equipped with vegetated medians as well as turnaround and drop-off points.

Currently there are only 23 luminaries within the park with the majority of these illuminating the pond and only one of the primary pathways. This greatly limits the time frame in which the park could be used and also leads to major safety concerns. The Vision Plan seeks to locate additional lighting throughout the park and also encourage different forms of lighting to be utilized. For example, the existing acorn luminaries would be utilized to illuminate the East Lawn and the surrounding paths. The Carriage Loop path would benefit from low bollard lighting which could be activated via a motion detector. The West Lawn Loop and the West Terraces could utilize in-ground lighting and the Sculpture Garden could be up-lit or have focal lighting highlight the installations.

Initial lighting will provide much-needed lights within the park to illuminate existing major pathways and the internal park drive as well as pathway intersections. The instillation of lights can take place at anytime and in any order as funds are collected.

Goodale Park has always served as a space for gathering, celebrating, and expressing the culture of Columbus. The Vision Plan seeks to reinforce the identity of Goodale Park as being the Art Park within Columbus’ Arts District. As such, the events which the park hosts should demonstrate the diversity of what art can mean. This could include events and activities focused on traditional notions of art such as painting, photography, and sculpture classes. However, this could also include the art of culinary sciences through events such as coffee and wine festivals or the art of the human form through events such as yoga or ice skating in the park.

The Vision Plan’s streetscape improvement strategy provides multiple options which could be implemented singularly or in combination with each other. The primary goal of these improvements is to create a more park-like streetscape, blurring the defined edge of Goodale Park.

Proposed Site Plan. Small moves provide big impacts in this design. A slight change of vehicular entrance opens up the park’s “front yard” as a safe complete space. Subtle reworking and removal of paths unites small spaces, and a revival of the historic carriage path allows park users to ambulate around the park rather than straight through on existing desire line paths

Goodale Park History, 1851-Present. In 1851 Dr. Lincoln Goodale gifted “40 acres more or less” of his property to the city of Columbus with the intention it be used as a pleasure ground by the cities inhabitants. Considered to be Columbus’ oldest developed park, Goodale Park is surrounded by the historic Victorian Village neighborhood and the revitalized Short North Arts District. The park has experienced an extremely diverse and colorful history. It has served as a site of a Civil War camp, a menagerie, revival and temperance meetings, croquet parties, strawberry festivals, and has survived numerous controversies. However, Goodale Park has endured and remains an oasis of tranquility and beauty within one of the most active districts in Columbus.
