Wickford Parking Lot Project

Spring 2016
Parking in Wickford, RI with Green Infrastructure
Students in the junior studio redesigned 3 parking lots in Wickford, RI that are prone to flooding at lunar and king tides. These lots are also vulnerable during increasingly more frequent and severe storm events.

Each student worked individually on each parking lot incorporating the historic and cultural nature of the New England town into their proposals. Sets of boards from 6 students were chosen to be shown at the North Kingstown Public Library for 2 weeks as part of community outreach.

This studio was funded by RI Sea Grant and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation through the Coastal Resources Center.

As a note, the following semester, these students evaluated the effect of their designs by using ASLA Landscape Performance Measurements.
