Ethos: Parks + Gardens

Parks, greenways and public open space are essential civic infrastructure. We have transformed many North American cities by rethinking the aesthetic and economic underpinning of public spaces, including new self-sustaining park models in Dallas, Chicago, Toronto, San Diego, and Houston. Structured deck parks, including those that cap or are adjacent to highways are places of transformative opportunity. Reclaiming spaces ceded to cars for the public realm can change how cities work. Our goal is to rethink how we connect to each other by making equitable access to parks and gardens a priority.
