Park-Like @ Pulitzer Arts Foundation
In the first episode of this next season, we talked (again) to our guests Kristin Fleischmann Brewer, of the Pulitzer Arts Foundation & Chris Carl, of Studio Land Arts. They discuss their newest collaboration called Park-Like, a new green space across from the Pulitzer building, and how it came to be; the organic process of development and iteration, the importance of the local community and sustainable practices, and what the future holds.
Located across the street from the museum, Park-Like is a sustainably designed green space for visitors to meander along the grass pathways, investigate plants and wildlife in an urban setting, and be delighted by unexpected perspectives. The garden comprises both native and non-native plants, as well as found building materials that have been transformed into water filtration systems, retaining structures, seating, and play space. Utilizing site-responsive land and rainscaping techniques, the project was designed by Studio Land Arts to absorb stormwater runoff and reduce the impact on urban drainage and sewer systems while creating a site for wildlife and the public to enjoy.
