Patriots’ Park

I contributed to the design for Patriots’ Park in Venice while interning with George Palermo Architect in 2002. Developed by Leadership Sarasota 2002, Venice Area Beautification, and Sarasota County Parks and Recreation, the park includes the Veterans’ Memorial and the Freedom Walk. The Veterans’ Memorial presents an assembly of flags that represent the armed forces, arrayed above inlaid bronze plaques that commemorate past and present military service. The Freedom Walk presents a collection of quotations reflecting the theme of freedom, embossed on bronze plaques mounted to sculpted concrete monoliths.
