The plan for Durfee Gardens at the University of Massachusetts, is organized along the historic agricultural principle of the grid and engages existing ancient trees as part of the fabric of a new landscape. It recaptures lost space by strengthening pedestrian corridors and creating along them a series of five contemporary interlocking garden spaces inspired by historic agricultural and landscape typologies.
Durfee Gardens has been recognized by numerous awards, including the American Society of Landscape Architects only Honor Award for design in 1995. It has also been published in numerous periodicals and books, including the ASLA’s centennial One Hundred Years of Landscape Architecture (1999).
