Congratulations to Landscape Architecture Bureau on their Merit Award in the Design – Built category for the Garrison Elementary School in Washington, DC.
The Garrison Elementary School project, located in DC’s Shaw and Logan Circle neighborhoods, is a 6.5-acre multi-functional public park space that serves both the school and the surrounding neighborhood. The landscape architect provided a full range of services for these spaces.
This project began as a pro-bono collaboration with the local neighborhood and school community. The project ultimately manifested as a landscape that is sensitive to the site’s historic character, creating lively recreation and social spaces for a growing community, and provides a unique setting for youth to learn environmental education and stewardship. The site’s rich history is revealed through a series of carefully-placed public sculptures.
