PROJECT INFO

CDR’s aesthetic design for this pedestrian park uses the Crown Plaza’s theme of Innovation to pay homage to those in pursuit of discovery and originality by creating a place of respite around a pool that features quotations by local innovators. Located at Olmstead Park near the Downtown Crown neighborhood, design concepts for the plaza, sidewalks, hardscapes, respite areas, and other pedestrian facilities include quotes attributed to innovators, artists, musicians and authors. Each paver is engraved with quotations by various innovators, colorful concrete treatments, and landscaping. The idea allows for the expansion of discoverable elements to be added around the city in the future.
