Cherokee Removal Memorial Park Meigs County, Tennessee Above: Through interpretive exhibits and the historic significance of the memorial, BWSC's design goal was to evoke an emotional response. Landscape architectural design and hardscape design involved native plantings, wayfinding signage, memorial panels with Cherokee cultural elements; all meant to honor the Cherokees who were removed from the region in what is known as the Trail of Tears. The central feature is seven vertical granite panels arranged in a radial pattern and placed at the apex of a seven pointed star, leaving an open space at the center to symbolize a nation pulled apart from their homeland. The landscape architects prepared the master plan, led the multidisciplinary design team, were the primary client contact, prepared the preliminary site grading plan, prepared plans for landscapes and hardscapes, and had the lead role in providing construction phase services. Torchbearer Plaza, Knoxville, Tennessee Center and Bottom, Left: As part of a beautification effort for the University of Tennessee Knoxville campus, BWSC transformed Torchbearer Plaza and Circle Park with new benches, trees lining the street, new trash receptacles, new retaining walls and pavers and new turf and irrigation for the park. Wider, safer and ADA accessible sidewalks better accommodate pedestrian traffic to Neyland Stadium. The landscape architects prepared the master plan, led the multidisciplinary design team, were the primary client contact, prepared the preliminary grading site plan, the landscapes and hardscapes and had the lead role in providing construction phase services. 100 Landscape Architect and Specifier News 100 Landscape Architect and Specifier News Barge Waggoner Sumner & Cannon, Inc.
