World Table | University of Nevada – Las Vegas Downtown Design Center

World-Table-Afternoon-Perspective-WLA
Our design will contribute to the art of the garden by celebrating the idea of a World Table. This  becomes a place where people are drawn together — some by choice, others by chance. The inviting nature of the table and its setting delight the senses. This experience is meant for visitors to let their guard down and provoke an interaction with those gathered around the table for serendipitous encounters, or formal, planned events.  This project may be constructed for less than $5000 at garden festivals, for parklets, or other events.

Penn State students help rebuild stormwater systems in Philadelphia

WBGS Philadelphia2

Wilson Lee, a junior in the landscape architecture program, wiped the sweat and dirt from his brow under a hot October sun. Along a busy street in the heart of central Philadelphia, Lee joined a group of other Penn State students, staff and community volunteers to revamp two green infrastructure sites in the city he calls home. “I’ve been around central Philly a lot and have seen places similar to this throughout the city,” Wilson said. “It’s nice to come in and rehabilitate my community with projects and rain gardens like this. Everyone who has walked by has been appreciative of what we’re doing.”
