Design for Innovation

PRAIRIE OAKS

architectural aesthetic

WSA Studio was instrumental in the development of an architectural aesthetic for this new Metro Park located on the west side of Columbus. The park centers around a prairie theme. Our team has endeavored to design structures that compliment and reinforce this historical theme and used materials indicative of the time. The structures are focused on historical precedents in American architecture. It also included the design and specification of a “green” waste management system. Included as part of the restroom facility is a natural composting system. This project was awarded the 2006 Designing Towards Sustainability Award from the AIA Columbus.
