As landscape architects, we're proud of what we do and we're passionate about creating spaces that make a difference. But it's not every day we get to be a part of a story like this one. In what our clients can only describe as a "God-driven experience", a simple idea to include an old pickup truck in a Memory Playground for a memory care facility connected generations of families from Olathe, Kansas to Kearney, Nebraska.
Workers lifted the modified '68 Ford into place at Cedar Lake Village this week, but its journey started almost 50 years ago. It's a story you really need to hear, and it's one that reminds us how what we do today can echo for years or even generations to come.
