Recognizing the structural force of landscape, the Dana Garden redesign strives to emphasize the gradations of the existing topography by utilizing a mixture of both native and nonnative plants at a variety pf heights and textures. Plant choice and placement center around issues of soil type (a dry sandy loam) and available sunlight to recreate areas reminniscent of a tall grass prairie and woodland setting. All choices within the garden revolve around making a welcoming place-based outdoor classroom highlighting many of the native, and some non-native flora growing in the state of Michigan. Design Goals: • Accentuate native Michigan flora in landscape design • Emphasize the gradations of the existing topography • Create a sense of privacy and sanctauary away from the bustling thoroughfare next-door • Produce an engaging sensory experience through color and texture • Tie style, texture, and plant choice into the surrounding University setting • Provide opportunities for learning in conjunction with the curriculum of the School of Natural Resources & Environment

Located in northeast Ann Arbor, the Plymouth Rd Big Boy restaurant is working to reduce the amount of damage, pollution, and waste caused by stormwater traveling across the site’s parking area. Current water flow is creating significant damage to the existing asphalt lot, resulting in the necessity for annual patches. Solutions to this project include the installation of permeable pavers, trench drains, curb cuts, and a rain garden in key portions of the site. Design Goals: • Increase the amount of storm water infiltration occurring on site, thereby decreasing the amount of pollutants entering the water table • Create a design that captures the first ½” flush • Decrease the amount of damage caused by storm water runoff on the parking lot itself • Decrease the amount of water wasted overall • Minimize the amount of disruption to the existing infrastructure • Create an aesthetically pleasing design that can showcase the sustainability goals of the owner • Emphasize the flow of water around the site via planting design

The design team worked with Discovering PLACE, a collective of Flint-area K-12 schools, University of Michigan-Flint faculty and staff, community organizations, and parents; and Beecher Middle/High School, a Flint public school, to design a place-based outdoor classroom at Beecher, and develop an implementation plan, best practices guide, and corresponding curriculum. The overarching goal of the project is to strengthen the presence of place-based education at Beecher High School, and to document the process of implementing the project so that the experience can be used as a framework for other schools interested in incorporating place-based education into their own educational practices. Design Goals: • • • • • •

An outdoor meeting space meant to hold small class lessons and activities provides an escape into nature during the warmer months of the year. Separated a little ways from the main outdoor classroom area, the taller prairie grasses ensure a semblance of seclusion and quiet from the higher activity Constructed mainly of recycled tires and reclaimed wood, the circular seating bench holds small classes of twenty to thirty students at a time., while extending a nod to Flint’s long history in the state automobile industry.

Located in Ann Arbor, MI, the entryway to the University of Michigan’s North Campus has long been an interesting and complex planning problem. University planners’ goals are to transform the gateway into a sustainable, civically engaging, and collegiate entryway that can provide superior visual interest to those entering North Campus. However, due to safety and maintenance issues, this must be accomplished without creating interest that invites individuals to physically walk upon or utilize the interior median space. Furthermore, easy access to multiple points of infrastructure buried along the median must be maintained. Focusing mainly upon the large grassy median and connecting sidewalks along Bonisteel Boulevard, the design concept utilizes planting as a creative solution to this predicament. Interweaving ribbons of colorful vegetation as a metaphorical coming together of the many disciplines residing on North Campus, each color symbolizes one of the major four: Music, Art/ Architecture, Engineering, and Campus Housing. Additionally, extending this color-coordinated planting design beyond the initial entryway provides a seasonal method of way finding, as well as a sense of cohesion and community among the disparate sections of North Campus.

The Water Street Redevelopment area is a 38-acre, Cityowned site adjacent to Historic Downtown Ypsilanti, between Ann Arbor and Detroit Metro Airport. The site is bounded on the north by 1500 feet of Michigan Avenue, and on the south and west by 1/2 mile of Huron River frontage. Redesigned into a mixed-use site, this layout provides a vibrant public plaza for year-round use, an industrial artist themed character district along the historic railroad and new B2B trail extension, a recreation center and riverfront park, 180,000 square feet of commercial space, 784 housing units, and 1,044 parking spaces in addition to on-street parking. Design Goals: • Site the new Eastside Washtenaw County recreational building for downtown Ypsilanti so as to maximize accessibility • Create a small character district for Ypsilanti right outside of its current downtown that includes both commercial and residential units • Create a new riverfront park linking Riverside Park and Water Works • Connect the B2B walking/biking trail to the site and rest of city • Integrate surrounding street and planning patterns into design

Originally planned, built, and carefully cultivated in the 1990s, the landscape of the Mason residence was in need of a little extra color, a splash of pizzazz, and some much needed updating. Focusing mainly on the curb appeal of the front entrance to the house, the original front foundation beds were extended and rounded out further into the front lawn area to provide space for multiple levels of layered flora. Within this extended space, mature existing favorites such as boxwoods, arborvitae, and maples were reutilized as backdrops for the newly integrated white spring azaleas, purple summer catmint, and flaming red autumn ‘Firepower’ nandina. Taking into account the somewhat shady nature of the front yard and the client’s love of all things hosta, three varieties (‘Blue Angel’, ‘Patriot,’ and ‘Guacamole’) were incorporated into the border design along with dozens of liriope to create a lush green edge. Rounding out the design and balancing the maples northeast of the driveway, two native fringe trees stand at the southern edge of the property providing shade, spring color, and further interest, while a new stepping stone pathway leads visitors under and around these graceful trees towards the backyard.

7 Located in the heart of Virginiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wine country and within the quiet county of Culpeper, Viginia, Old House Vineyards has fast become a well-known staple for exquisite wines, beautiful scenery, and world-class large events. After broadening their scope in 2014 to include the production of both wine and spirits on the Old House property, up to date and eye-catching signage was commisioned to encompass both aspects of the business. Taking into account the newly widened main drive, sunny location, and relaxed country atmosphere, the main sign itself was kept to a simple faux stone wall with complementary base plantings that would provide interest throughout the year. Mirrored wall sections and planting plans provide a sense of symmetrical balance to either side of the drive, while specially designed and alcoholic-process inspired signage provides wayfaring. Exposed copper piping reminiscent of large liquor stills points you in the direction of the new distillery, while a flattened wooden barrel indicates the wineryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tasting room off to your right.

Located directly south of the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor, Mott Children’s Park strives to provide a sanctuary and distraction for those both visiting and currently residing within the hopital complex. Designed in consultation with nearby Angell Elementary School students and regents of the hospital, the park space is divided into 4 main areas: the treehouse walkway, piano path and music area, butterfly gardens, and a central green all tied together via a pervading insect theme that can be spied both within and from a bird’s eye view of the space. Design Goals: • Create a fun and exciting outdoor space • Design a mix of low and high activity areas where children can both play and relax • Maximize maintenance, safety, and accessibility • Design spaces appealing to children both residing within and visiting Mott Children’s Hospital • Visually connect the park space to the surrounding environment (i.e. children’s hospital, university dormitory, and arboretum)

“When I say artist I mean the man who is building things creating molding the earth - whether it be the plains of the west - or the iron ore of Penn. It’s all a big game of construction - some with a brush - some with a shovel - some choose a pen” -Jackson Pollock “I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way - things I had no words for.” -Georgia O’Keefe The following pages contain a small selection of construction documents, hand drawings, and graphic design elements detailing various aspects of landscapes and design in general. Included within this section are several construction details for the creation of an assymetrical covered porch, advertising materials, a 2-D to 3-D study on color and form, and an invitation/program set for a quirky local wedding.

In order to better understand the intricacies of color and form, a cubist painting entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Early Morningâ&#x20AC;? by Lyubov Popova was replicated, examined, and transformed into various artistic mediums.

Step1:

The original artwork was replicated in colored pencil, then again in black and white using charcoal.

Step 2: The piece was then popped into a relief model made out of chip board and acrylic paint. Step 3: A 3-dimensional conceptual landscape model (inspired by the original artwork) was then created using only metal, glass, and wood for materials.

Who do We Want to Participate? Everyone! All students, staff, family, friends, and community, members are able to assist in this phase of the project.

How to Participate? Twice a month we will be coming to Beecher to engage with teachers and students to collectively generate ideas, goals, and planning. This fall we will be hosting focus groups, visioning sessions, and workshops that will help guide the process.

How can an Outdoor Classroom be Utilized for Learning?

Benefits of an Outdoor Classroom

• Native plants help students learn about the natural communities within their own neighborhood • Laying out vegetable gardens teach both math and science skills, while introducing students to a practical skill in food production that they can bring home to their friends and families • Outdoor mosaics and other art projects allow for freedom of expression

• An increase in physical development, capability ,and activity • Setting up patterns for an active, healthy lifestyle • Fewer children suffering from diseases such as obesity, Diabetes, and ADD/ADHD

... and so much more!

Be sure to watch for e-mail reminders!

A garden, nature trail, or other any other form of outdoor landscape where PLACEbased learning can be used as a tool to span multiple disciplines and grade levels. These environements help students to connect with their surroundings through inquiry-based learning and community involvement.

Understanding: • Familiarity with and appreciation of nature • Wide, expansive view of how the world works • Building stewardship skills for the environment
