Prairie Prime Time
When Mundus Bishop was selected to upgrade public access to the Plains Conservation Center, a shortgrass prairie preserve in Colorado, the pandemic was still two years away. Social distancing made the center a destination for nearby Aurora residents, so the design team kept the

A rebuilt pavilion at the area’s top attraction, Gulf State Park, backed by a Sasaki master plan, came to represent
all that money can and cannot be returned.
