It is not easy to summarize the role Jim played in the landscape of St. Louis Landscape Architecture. His

active career spanned 43 years and he lent his deep expertise to domestic and international projects ranging from large-scale land use

and master planning to detailed construction and implementation.

Jim was with The HOK Planning Group for nearly 33 years where he was

responsible for master planning and site design of many St. Louis projects including St. Louis Union Station, Stupp Memorial

in Tower Grove Park, Saint Louis Galleria and the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center. Jim was particularly committed to redevelopment projects in downtown St. Louis and actively led site design for Cupples Station Streetscape, Chouteau Lake District and Greenway, Ballpark Village Master Plan, St. Louis Cardinals Ballpark, St. Louis CBD Streetscape

Jim’s passion was Park and could rattle urban landscape projects; particularly off a tale from the development of any those that provide

After leaving HOK Jim was a partner in the foundation of DTLS, where he continued his influence over the built environment of St. Louis and became a lecturer in the Masters of Landscape Architecture program at Washington University in St. Louis Graduate School of Architecture and Urban

trained as an architect and really enjoyed the merging of the practice of Architecture with the practice of Landscape Architect. He was

famous for his dogged determination and inquisitive nature for every aspect of the design process. His passion for project management and procedural rigor was

foundational for many generations of landscape architects.


In 2004, Jim was inducted into the American Society of Landscape Architects Council of Fellows, among the highest honors the ASLA bestows on members. The designation of Fellow is conferred on individuals in recognition of exceptional

accomplishments over a sustained period of time.

What better phrase to describe the life and legacy of Jim?

“Being elected a Fellow represents the recognition of my peers and associates of my passion and commitment for the landscape architectural profession. It also represents an appreciation of my personal accomplishments and built work that I have been fortunate enough to participate in. It also is acknowledges my contribution over the years to mentor and train young landscape architectural graduates.” - Jim, 2004, on being elected to the Council of Fellows

PROJECT SUMMARY:

2 0 1 8 ANNUAL AWARDS E V E N T

Fort Defiance Park in Cairo, IL, is at the confluence of Mississippi and Ohio Rivers, which is flooded annually and is underutilized. By observing and studying river control structures, how they form still water areas after foods and how algae survive in these areas, the redevelopment of the park uses algae as the theme for an intervention. The design comes with a series of food-adaptive and productive algae

culturing devices for diets and energy consumption. The intervention is composed of three parts: the biodiesel algae land model terrace, the edible algae tank culturing system, and the bioluminescent algae lighting system. The three components cooperate with the park’s existing structures and functions: they capture and emphasize the park’s open/passive spaces, pedestrian flow and the site’s geography meaning. In addition, the proposal anticipates bringing new potentials to the park such

PROJECT SUMMARY:

Over three acres of highly manicured turf and non-native plants were replaced with a 6-acre reconstructed Missouri Tallgrass Prairie. The prairie was undertaken in conjunction with the planning, design, and construction of a 79,000 sf building addition to accommodate 120 additional scientists. The interpretive signage for the Danforth Center prairie was installed to celebrate

the end of the three-year establishment period and for the formal dedication of the prairie in the fall of 2018. The landscape architects created five interpretive panels to communicate the connection between the Center’s mission to “improve the human condition through plant science” and the development of native landscapes. The Center hosts scientists and guests from around the world. The interpretive panels

are positioned along an exterior tour route that is an extension of the “science on display” tour that is given to visitors inside the building. These panels are intended to communicate the Center’s reasons for the prairie restoration and the role that prairie habitat plays in our world. They establish a high standard of excellence in the region, in both graphic execution and educational content, for communication centered on native landscapes.

Brentwood, Missouri has embarked on a series of projects to reimagine the community, engage citizens, and solve some problems. Known as Brentwood Bound, it consists of three components; Manchester Road Improvements, Deer Creek Flood Mitigation, and the Deer Creek Greenway Connector. Rogers Parkway Enhancement Feasibility

Study is a plan to connect almost one quarter of the City to these new improvements. The study’s focus was to identify the best enhancements to the Rogers’ Greenway corridor and to continue the ideas and concepts depicted in the Great Rivers Greenway (GRG) project to connect Rogers Parkway to the regional River Ring Greenway. The final plan focused on the Sustainable SITES core values of: 1) optimum site accessibility, safety and

wayfinding, 2) managing stormwater precipitation on site, and 3) supporting social connections and physical activity. The plan consists of six areas, unique not only due to their location along the overall corridor but also due to their character and features available to the users. Collectively, these districts create an amenity rich and uniquely diverse greenway experience that connects the residents to retail, business and recreational opportunities north and south.

7-story mixed-use fusion facility, the campus was in need of a plan that would seamlessly integrate differing architectural styles and building materials into a cohesive campus landscape. Through the deployment of purposeful place making, the updated master plan creates a distinct identity within the large academic medical center in which it is located, creating a strong connection between the students and its public realm.

Centered around a main Campus Quad, the overall landscape will maximize green space, strengthen pedestrian connectivity, enhance perimeters and create environments that showcase the College as a premier place of learning, research and service. Surrounding the new structures, a generous tree lined promenade and terraced commons landscape will incorporate flexible space for active and passive activities.
