This project started with an acre of land that could be filled with up to 100 trees and designed to portray ‘radiance’. This landscape evokes radiance because of the details used. The trees radiate off the southern edge, while the yellow color of the Norway Maples resemble the sun and the glistening water radiates outward with the trees.

My focus on this project was to use typography to portray brownfield rehabilitation. Each letter is made of images of brownfield rehabilitation sites, ‘R’ starting with the beginning phase, and ‘E’ ending with the final product after rehabilitation. The project was displayed in the barrel vault gallery in our College of Environment and Design.
