Landscape Architecture Overview:

Central College has a history filled with examples of students and staff dedicating themselves to the ideals of our nation through military service. The garden and amphitheater, located in the heart of campus, are an opportunity to honor these stories by giving them a physical space dedicated to the remembrance of Central College’s history. The purpose of this project is to establish an area on campus which will be used to hear the voices of the past and honor the legacy they established. The challenge in creating a memorial in the heart of campus is one of tone. With a campus as jovial and vibrant as Central College, the landscape architects needed to establish a tenor for the memorial which honored the memory of prior generations, while embracing the lifestyles of contemporary college life.
