Spring Garden Connector

Finalist 2019
Spring Garden Connector

The Delaware River Waterfront Corporation was eager to improve the connection between several Philadelphia neighborhoods and the Delaware River. The Spring Garden Connector was notoriously dimly lit, dingy, depressing and it didn’t feel safe. The challenge was to transform the underpass into a safer and more welcoming connection to the waterfront, a major transit station, bike share hub and river trail.

Placemaking and Peacemaking at a Living Memorial

American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial

Memorials are a delicate balancing act, an uncomfortable abstraction made real in stone and bronze. They must pay tribute to the dead while relaying history and inspiring hope in future generations of the living. They must eloquently tell a story, create a memorable place and mark a moment in time. The new American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial does all those things, with a substantial addition. This memorial was designed to celebrate the living.

The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial is the first national memorial dedicated to the 3.5 million veterans living with permanent disabilities. As described by President Obama at the October 2014 dedication ceremony, “From this day forward, Americans will come to this place and ponder the immense sacrifice made on their behalf; the heavy burden borne by a few so that we might live in freedom and peace.”
