October 2018 103 Frederick Douglass Square University of Maryland, College Park, Md. Above: Floura Teeter provided landscape design services to the University of Maryland to create a 4,500-square-foot plaza commemorating Maryland native, Frederick Douglass. The project included replacement of existing paving, installation of new seating, lighting and planting, placement of a Frederick Douglass statue, and significant quotes by Frederick Douglass. The new plaza is located entirely on the rooftop of the existing Hornbake Library – currently home to first editions of all three Douglass autobiographies and historic collections of his life and writings. Penn Street Reading, Pa. Below: Initiated through the EPA's Making a Visible Difference in Communities program, the goal of Greening Reading's Penn Street Corridor was to develop an innovative and implementable vision for a distinctive and ecologically functional streetscape that incorporates green infrastructure, facilitates bicycle connections between the existing trails along the Schuylkill River and City Park and enriches the pedestrian experience. In coordination with the EPA, Floura Teeter worked with the City of Reading and its citizens, and the Reading Redevelopment Authority to create the plan for improvements along one mile of this historic main street.
