Infrastructure & Public Access
At our flagship park projects, we aim to welcome thousands of visitors to spectacular landscapes with minimal impact. Accordingly, we put tremendous effort into designing and constructing world-class park infrastructure. Campgrounds, visitor centers, road and trail networks, signage, and other facilities have been designed to be durable and energy efficient, and minimize impacts on the landscape’s natural qualities. Each project takes its architecture style from regional landmarks and designs, and incorporates local materials—wood, stone, recycled materials—whenever possible.
Good architecture in a national park can elevate the visitor experience, communicate that a society values its natural heritage, and promote the idea that beauty in all its forms—natural and human-created—truly matters.
