CVL provided pro-bono landscape architectural services in partnership with Discovery Triangle Development Corporation to renovate the entry plaza and landscaping for the George Washington Carver (“GWC”) Museum in downtown Phoenix. CVL researched the history of the museum as a site on the Phoenix Historic Property Register and National Register of Historic Places to fully understand this historical institution’s role within the city and best articulate a sensitive and responsive landscape design for the existing grounds. The landscape design focused on accentuating the existing GWC statue and improving circulation to welcome visitors onto the site with an environmentally sensitive xeriscape plant palette. CVL worked closely with the contractor and developer to ensure the project’s costs were kept in budget and ultimately designed the site for an installation cost of approximately $25,000.
The award is earned by a person who has made a lifetime commitment to ASCE and the civil engineering profession by remaining a member for the full length of their professional career.
