Recent Work

Pizzuti Collection Sculpture Garden

Recently recognized by the Ohio Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects with a Merit Award for design, the Pizzuti Collection Sculpture Garden is a contemporary addition to the Short North Arts District. Located adjacent to Goodale Park, Columbus’ oldest public park, the garden design utilizes a language of traditional garden elements and materials complimenting the garden’s historic context. Formally and spatially, the garden shifts geometries and visual orientations prompting the visitor to explore the small space in a way that leaves them with a much more prolonged memory of the garden and individual pieces.
