FOREGROUND

In the tank (water)
Amid the wetlands and steelworks of Chicago’s Big Marsh Park, a new water recycling system at the Ford Calumet Environmental Center is renewing the area’s ecological potential.

Tavern on site (preservation)
The historic Dunham Tavern in Midtown Cleveland was a destination of interest to all but its neighbors. Merritt Chase and LAND Studio have incorporated the community and some missing pieces of the area’s history into a new master plan for the landscape.

FEATURES

In their elements
Farm, family, and design fundamentals, topped with a dash of social media, might seem like an uncommon recipe for a nationally recognized landscape architecture firm. But at Stimson, that’s how they’ve always done it.

The year of the Superstudio
With its clear call for green jobs, environmental justice and national decarbonization, the Green New Deal reads like a set of incentives for a landscape architecture studio, so why not make one? Inside the year-long experience aimed at grounding the policy in real regional issues.
