To create more usable spaces for Garrigus Plaza at the University of Kentucky's College of Agriculture, Food and Environment (CAFE), an area referred to as the "sun deck" was designed as an outdoor dining space.

Bringing Stormwater Management to Queens College, City University of
New York (CUNY)

Kiely Hall at Queen's College in Kew Garden Hills, Queens, New York, houses the campus administrative offices. The plaza was an expanse of older asphalt pavers that had settled and heaved over time. A dilapidated metal sculpture was removed from the center of the plaza, and a new central circle of permeable pavers installed. The center was left open for flexible seating options. Alternating swatches of decorative concrete and rain gardens extend into the plaza at various points to direct and collect stormwater runoff. The plantings are primarily native or indigenous to the New York region, including Pink Summersweet, Inkberry and Bearberry shrubs. Perennials and grasses include switchgrasses, aster, coreopsis and salvia.
