In April we participated in a competition to re-imagine Coxe Park, a pocket park in Philadelphia’s Logan Square neighborhood designed by modernist architect Norman Rice. This week we are thrilled to announce that WE WON!!!
To celebrate, we gathered with the Park neighbors and stakeholders for pizza, hoagies, beer, and juice boxes at the park. Mark Focht, First Deputy of Parks & Facilities and the Co-Presidents of the Friends of Coxe Park, Drew Murray and Marissa Piccarreto, gave a brief summary of the competition process and the community’s involvement. Our own Julie Bush and Zach Barker described our design intent and the individual elements, which included a slide hill, blanket mounds, and a play fringe!
We are excited to have won but we are also excited to have been competing with some very talented firms: SALT DESIGN STUDIO and TEND Landscape, Inc.
