reconnecting Roxbury
with an iconic public landscape

This strategic renovation of the historic 530-acre Franklin Park proposes a thickening and clearing of existing vegetation and subtle manipulation of topography to create habitat-rich ecotones that breathe new life into the aging park.  The vegetation strategy carves out matrices of interlocking spaces that invite visitors in from the park's Northeastern edge, blurring the boundaries of inside and outside.
