Ben Franklin is on the Move

franklin high schoolAfter standing in situ for 100 years, the massive namesake of Franklin High School is on the move. He’s making way for major renovations, accessibility and modernization currently under construction. As the landscape architects of this project, we trust that Ben will find his new position in the main activity area of the campus satisfying, with a proper purview over school activities, sporting events and new site improvements. And who knows, maybe some kite flying?

Landscape Architects Recognized for Light Rail Line Design

When is a light rail line more than a just a transit project? When an enlightened agency like TriMet hires landscape architects and urban designers to “stitch all the component parts and pieces into a unified whole…and celebrate the distinctive character of each station and neighborhood.”

A recent Daily Journal of Commerce article highlights the role that landscape architects had in designing the MAX Orange Line.  In addition to Mayer/Reed and CH2M who were mentioned in the article, several other landscape architects participated in the light rail line design, including GreenWorks who worked closely with Mayer/Reed on the east side.
