110 Landscape Architect and Specifier News Lift Environmental Design Durham, North Carolina Charlotte Brody Discovery Garden, Duke University Campus, Durham, North Carolina The Charlotte Brody Discovery Garden sits within the 55-acre Sarah P. Duke Gardens on the Duke University campus. The design team consisted of the landscape architect, an architect, a civil engineer and the Duke Gardens staff. The Discovery Garden is part of a larger mission to reinvest in the gardens and increase their impact within the community. The garden is a legacy to Charlotte Brody, a passionate organic gardener who taught community members how to grow their own food. Lift Environmental Design, PLLC - Lift[ED] - is a small two person landscape architecture firm based in Durham, N.C. During the past five years the firm's work included an NCASLA Honor Award for the Charlotte Brody Discovery Garden on the Duke University campus. The project was a SITES pilot project and profiled in the Landscape Architecture Foundation's case study investigation series. Lift believes that too much of nature has been removed from our towns and cities, and thus focuses on creating spaces that help people become closer to nature.
