Unity Village Plaza
Kansas City, Missouri
During initial design discussions for the renovation of the historic Unity Tower, Vireo was able to help Unity Village’s leaders expand their definition of what a landscape can be, especially for a spiritual center such as theirs. The result is not only a beautiful garden surrounding a historic structure, but a physical expression of the values and message that the Unity faith represents. Unique nodes around the tower integrate walkways, seating, plantings and sculpture designed to represent each of the 12 principles of the Unity faith.
