A bosquet at the southern edge of the site serves as an introduction to the Pruitt-Igoe landscape.

The palette consists of a mix of ornamental plants and plants occurring spontaneously on the site.  While the forms of the species vary widely, they all have heart-shaped leaves.


Planted on a grid of varying density, the planting is at once ordered and evocative of the clonal growth habits of pioneer species.


This model served as a means of exploring tree spacing and density – built at 1/16″=1′-0″, the model was large enough to allow me to look around and “get into the space”.  After several iterations, I was able to develop a final bosquet planting plan.  Phasing plans and sections explore how the bosquet will change over time as the trees grow and are thinned.
