Concept plans for the redesign of Patriot Plaza focused on creating a central, character-defining, public open space for the County as well as an everyday outdoor space for residents, visitors, and employees of the government core. Focused on improving access and offering programmable space to accommodate events and groups of varying sizes, the pubic amenity enhances connections amongst Patriot Plaza, the historic courthouse gardens, adjacent streets, and existing memorials.

The addition of a memorial garden, several feet in elevation above an event lawn, re-enforces a sense of prominence and symbolism. A gateway plaza, food truck stations, shade pavilions, amphitheater, art installations, interactive fountains, landscaped terraces, playground, and movable seating encourage interactions from the street and within.

EDSA addressed the need for an iconic public realm open space and improved accessibility during the conceptual design phase as well as collaborating on a design vision and framework with stakeholder groups.
