October 2016 107 Lee High School, Baton Rouge, Louisiana Above & Right: Opportunities were presented to design a landscape for a new state-of-the-art high school for Baton Rouge. The design team was tasked with creating a hands-on learning environment for 1,200 students, and focused on the heart of the campus. A network of walks and seating areas was incorporated throughout the site, with seamless connections to all learning studios. The amphitheater serves as a performing arts stage, outdoor classroom, and a place where students gather at lunchtime and breaks. A 600-foot bioswale serves as the green spine of the campus, and captures and treats most of the school's stormwater. Perkins Rowe, Baton Rouge, Louisiana Bottom: Perkins Rowe is a mixed-use development consisting of 11 blocks of specialty retail shops, restaurants, entertainment venues, residences and offices. Reich Associates' site design included streetscape and specialty paving, parks and open space, green roof terraces, and lights, lush plants and furnishings. Town Square and Magnolia Park are popular sites for social gatherings and concerts.
