Park Story: The Leaf

Durham is an amazing place. In a few short weeks architecture students conceived, citizens and businesses donated funds, and a major artistic addition was constructed that is now being enjoyed by park visitors every day.

This space will serve many functions and we can’t wait to start organizing events and performances for all our neighbors. Thanks so very much to all who contributed.

We also want to extend our sincere thanks to the North Carolina State University College of Design Department of Architecture Design/Build Studio students and instructors led by Studio B Architecture/BuildSense members Randy Lanou, Erik Mehlman, and Scott Metheny as well as Ellen Cassilly of Ellen Cassilly Architect, pictured above, that generously signed up to spend their summer designing and constructing the newest feature of our beloved park.

We look forward to seeing you at the Leaf!
