Mellon Park Walled Garden, Pittsburgh, Pa.

LBA collaborated with artist Janet Zweig to reimagine the historic Mellon Park walled garden as a memorial to the life of Ann "Annie" Katharine Seamans. LBA provided design services including installation oversight of the garden space which uses 150 fiber optic "stars" to reflect the sky on Annie's birth date. This public garden is designed for all-season interest as plants showcase themselves in different forms throughout the year, and the in-ground constellation of stars bring the garden to life at night.Mellon Park Walled Garden, Pittsburgh, Pa.

Westmoreland Museum of American Art, Westmoreland, Pa.

LBA first began work at the Westmoreland Museum of American Art by facilitating stakeholder work sessions to create a vision for the museum's expansion. Following this exercise, LBA was part of the committee that selected Ennead Architects to design the museum expansion. Site design, site planning and construction oversight activities were led by LBA and collaborated with the cantilevered gallery visions of Ennead. Bold gestures through the landscape reinforce the architecture and native plantings contribute to the team's pursuit of LEED Gold status for the building.
