Birmingham Flight Sequence

Merit Award
Birmingham Flight Sequence, City of Birmingham, Lorenc/Yoo Design

The Birmingham Flight Sequence is a half mile sequence of flight integrated into the landscape design to form a unified seamless progression. As part of a major facility improvement at Birmingham Airport, the City of Birmingham recognized the need to improve the approach to the airport to improve the city's image. The original approach consisted of broken sidewalk, tattered chainlink fence and rental car lots that stretched the entire length of airport highway.

1961 Freedom Rides Exhibit

Merit Award
1961 Freedom Rides Exhibit, Alabama Historical Commission, Ralph Appelbaum Associates

The historic Freedom Rides of 1961, which ended in violence at the Greyhound Bus Station in Montgomery, Ala., were a key event in the American Civil Rights Movement. As the first step in an eventual renovation of the station, the Alabama Historical Commission sought to memorialize the site and present it as a key historical artifact.

Ralph Appelbaum Associates was tasked with designing an exhibit for the exterior of the bus station. The design team’s goal was to bring the story to life for visitors, many of whom were not of age or even born when it occurred.
