July 2018 57 Left: In Sugar Land, Texas, located 20 minutes southwest of downtown Houston, landscape architectural firm Clark Condon was the lead designer of a three-acre public park and plaza surrounding the Smart Financial Centre, a new 6,500-seat performing arts center. Curved patterns in the pavement extending outward from the building were meant to represent the graphics used to diagram musical sound waves. The plaza's features include a custom, highly programmable, interactive fountain, the center of which is a bowl with a 24' radius, creating a splash pool, 3' to 4' deep. RIght: Casual, movable seating is located in gravel paving areas underneath festoon lighting. The plaza/park also includes a multi-purpose open lawn, cast stone benches, softscape elements, a public art program and a food truck zone.
