Women in Design is looking forward to welcoming Landscape Architect, Mary Margaret Jones, President of Hargreaves Associates. as the 2014 Keystone Speaker this fall. In weeks prior to the event, WID will post a few blogs about her career and some examples of her impressive resume. This is the second blog in the series.
Penn’s Landing, Philadelphia, PA
Hargreaves Associates and its team worked with the DRWC planning committee, stakeholder agencies and neighborhood groups over a nine month period to develop a conceptual framework for the redevelopment of Penn’s Landing with an emphasis on an integrated approach to the overall public realm and development strategy, transportation systems, structural deck systems and concept for a world class 21st century urban park that will catalyze the creation of vibrant waterfront neighborhoods at Marina Basin and the Market Street site. Our work included the exploration of a wide range of program ideas and test fits to determine the appropriate mix and scale of amenities throughout the new Penn’s Landing District. The project will reconnect Center City to the Delaware River via a new 12 acre I-95 highway cap, and includes a total 34.15 acres of waterfront open space within a new 45 acre neighborhood.
Below are a few renderings of the proposed site.
Have you attended a Women in Design presentation or social activity? Have you volunteered to wield a hammer for a day with Women in Design and Habitat for Humanity? Have you ever been curious about the inner workings of our communications? Have you wanted to get more involved?
The Annual Women in Design Retreat is a great time to find out more about the women who plan all our activities, bring creative ideas for the 2015 WiD Year, participate in the future of women in the design and construction industries and become an integral part of our community! It will be a day of fun, collaboration, work and socializing!
We start at 9 a.m. at Converge with our fearless leader and Executive Co-Chair Geneva Kowalski leading a session of yoga, move into evaluating our 2014 year with goals toward 2015. Lunch will be created with the help of all the attendees and WiD’s favorite chef, Yvette Bannano Tharp with YBHungry. She will lead us through the creation of a delicious menu sure to please the vegetarians, celiacs, omnivores and picky eaters all while building connections, melding friendships, and learning about WiD’s committees! The afternoon will continue planning and meeting one another with a finale of Networking at the Source after 5 p.m. with the attendees plus extras….like spouses and significant others!!
We certainly hope you will RSVP for a great day with the Women of WiD!
Hope to see you there!
