Public Landscape Architecture > South Burlington City Center Gateway
As a design team, T. J. Boyle Associates and artist Dan Gottsegen collaborated successfully with residents, the City of South Burlington and Healthy Living, to evoke a sense of place through images, engage residents on-site as well as in the design process, provide seating and visual amenities to Healthy Living, and by using local materials in construction. To turn an urban environment into one of artistic interpretation, the design included curvilinear forms translucent, colorful vertical planes to create a visually lyrical and chromatically engaging experience for the viewer. The main feature, a custom fabricated screening fence, playfully undulates through the site, alternating between sections of vine covered screen mesh and colorful painted images of the landscape. The landscape images themselves are a focal point and were inspired through a charette led by artist Dan Gottsegen involving participants from cross-cultural, inter-generational and senior communities.
