The Winslow Green anchors one end of Bainbridge Island’s Historic Mainstreet. The 1/3-acre park is privately owned by the retail and residential Condominium Association who encourage public access and use by the community. The large lawn was retained and the site reorganized to create more opportunities for the park to serve as a venue for a variety of community events. Upgrades include improved access to the park and businesses. New features include a civic scaled arrival staircase framed with granite boulders, a crushed stone plaza, drainage improvements, walks, landscaping, and small gardens. The existing pavilion was repositioned and upgraded.

View Project Website

The American Battle Monuments Commission commissioned four firms to develop design concepts for a new U.S. memorial at New Zealand’s historic War Memorial Park in the city of Wellington. FBP teamed with Generator Studio of Kansas City to develop a design concept. With a focus on World War II, our design celebrates the 100-year alliance between U.S. & N.Z.  The bridge symbolizes the Arc of History where significant conflicts & peacekeeping agreements between our nations are remembered. The bridge is also located on an axis connecting Washington DC and Wellington.  It lies at the intersection of two opposing gardens:  Garden of Peace and Garden of Sacrifice, and is a place to experience the dualities of Peace & War, Life & Death, Hope & Despair and the intersection of these dualities where Peacekeeping, Growth and Sacrifice are embraced and as a place to honor and remember those who have served.
