The Ark Encounter in Kentucky is unlike any other theme park on the planet, letting visitors walk inside a life-size model of Noah’s famous ark from the Bible’s flood account. In 2019, the park opened a brand-new building, the Answers Center, where it leads daily presentations in a 2,500-seat auditorium, offers memorabilia at a gift shop and hosts guest speakers on a variety of biblical topics.    

Signature Design is on winning team for Nachusa Grasslands (ASLA) American Society for Landscape Architects 2019 Merit Award.
