WAR MEMORIAL GATEWAY
Unless otherwise noted, all images on this page prepared by CMG Landscape Architecture with Kennerly Architecture + Planning and Gehl Studio. All designs are conceptual and pending further refinement.
The existing Franklin-Fulton intersection poses a dangerous pedestrian crossing, provides substandard accessibility, and presents an unmemorable entry into the War Memorial Complex and Historic Civic Center District.
Parked cars block view of War Memorial and City Hall.
The existing pedestrian path of travel is narrow and cluttered, posing significant ADA challenges.
Durable, elegant, and smooth paving creates a flexible use plaza and cues vehicles to drive slowly through the space.
Design could incorporate event infrastructure, such as tent footing foundations and power pedestals, into the plaza.
Moveable planters can accommodate small trees or plantings, and can beplaced on lockable casters.
The planters could be moved to accommodate events. The planters would also fit within a tented event.
