Bud Clark Commons Work Day

Bud Clark Clean upLandscape architects at Mayer/Reed volunteered “hands on” time last week,  applying elbow grease into pruning shrubs and trees of the two courtyards at Bud Clark Commons, a non-profit center providing services to the homeless. The Day Center and Men’s Shelter courtyards get intensive use everyday. While we don’t normally maintain the landscapes that we’ve designed, returning to sites after installation is time well spent to see if the spaces are being used in all the ways we anticipated.

Bud Clark Commons Gate Featured in eg

The Bud Clark Commons courtyard gate is featured in the current edition of eg, the award-winning magazine focusing on visual communications in the built environment. The magazine is published quarterly by the Society for Experiential Graphic Design (SEGD).


“Mayer/Reed was responsible for landscape architecture and environmental graphics for the center, including a distinctive courtyard gate that at once communicates the center’s ethos of safety and inclusiveness.

Waterjet-cut from weathering steel, the 16-foot-wide gate contains quotations that establish connections to the community and to the shared human condition.”
