Not only its economy, but also its history of development is linked to the ways in which it has utilized COREEN SCHMIDT this resource.This relationship is the central theme of the master plan for Church Street Plaza, which breaks down the Boston’s successive stages of growth as it encroached ever further in to the salt marshes, wetlands, and open bays that marked its watery boundary. Each of these stages is represented within the site as an interlocking “island,” taking the visitor through the progression and highlighting the cyclical nature of the process. In breaking down these elements of Boston’s history, and the ways in which it was linked to the exploitation of its water, the Church Street Plaza provides a commentary on our CHURCH STREET past that is equally relevant to the environmental issues facing development today. However, through the use of diverse materials, microclimates and creative elements, “The Forest – Nature Stage Birch Grove the space proves a myriad of experiences that can be enjoyed simply for their own sake as well.

  7. 7. 3110 JUDSON STREET, PMB 243 • GIG HARBOR, WASHINGTON 98335 THE FARM SCHOOL This concept emphasizes the integration of Ambler Farm’s various programming and site elements in a way which brings the agricultural aspect of the landscape to the forefront. The agricultural 503.936.6086 • COREENSCHMIDT@GMAIL.COM elements are clustered at the heart of the site, and the northern field has been reclaimed for farming. The parking area for the municipal soccer fields has been enlarged to accommodate event parking, and a simple path leads visitors into the site through the agricultural fields. In addition, the central core of the site – consisting of the white house and the white carriage barn – has been re-envisioned as the cultural and historic hub of the farm. COREEN SCHMIDT THE COMMONS This concept proposes the most dramatic changes to the Ambler Farm landscape and maximizes both the open space and agricultural opportunities of the site. The loop road has been removed to re- link the major historic buildings and create a more unified landscape. This opens up large swaths of the site that were formerly under-utilized and provides more recreational open space and uninterrupted farmland. A small circular drive provides access to two small parking areas, and the main parking area has again been consolidated with that of the adjacent municipal soccer fields.

The ultimate goal of this master plan was to develop a model for fostering a more intimate relationship with our food and the environment through the integration of “native foods” into the Ambler Farm landscape. These foods, both wild and cultivated, sustained New England’s earliest inhabitants and convey the essence of the region and its landscape. By allowing the memory of the land to return and reintroducing people to New England’s native bounty, visitors to Ambler Farm will find a new, unique sense of place and expand their notion of what a food-producing landscape can be.

The barn itself is currently being used for classes, farm events and private rentals, and a new terrace has been Terrace Ice House & Museum added to provide flexible outdoor space for all of the existing programming. Native food-bearing plants have been sited around the terrace to bring 503.936.6086 • COREENSCHMIDT@GMAIL.COM the native foods theme into this heavily-used area. The icehouse has been opened to the public as a museum, highlighting Wilton’s farming past and the agricultural legacy of Ambler Farm. Historic farm implements, which are currently scattered throughout the property, are displayed in the surrounding area to extend the museum experience into the landscape. Rabbit Hutch Demonstration Beds – Mixed Native Edibles Pathway to Parking Gathering Space COREEN SCHMIDT Carriage Barn Parking NATIVE FOODS GARDEN Farmstand The central theme of the master plan for Ambler Farm was to create an opportunity for a deeper connection to the landscape through the introduction of native foods. This garden is planted with a diverse array of trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants which once provided food to the region’s native peoples. The space is broken up into a series of planing beds which highlight both the productive and the ornamental value of the plants and allow people to engage directly with the growing landscape. A central gathering space serves as both an open-air classroom for workshops and other educational programs relating to native foods as well as a quite place for study or relaxation.

  11. 11. 3110 JUDSON STREET, PMB 243 • GIG HARBOR, WASHINGTON 98335 HONORING A CENTURY OF LABOR From approximately 1840 to 1960 the Biddeford-Saco mill complex was one of southern Maine’s primary economic engines. Some 14,000 workers of American, Canadian, European and Asian descent labored to produce machinery, cloth, blankets and other products for domestic and foreign marketplaces. In the years since the factories were shuttered, Biddeford’s mill district has been largely abandoned, and the historic 19th century industrial buildings that dominate the town’s riverfront 503.936.6086 • COREENSCHMIDT@GMAIL.COM have fallen into disrepair. The Mill District Memorial Fountain is one of several public open space components proposed as part of a larger master plan for the redevelopment of this area, which was tentatively approved for listing on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007. The location of such a large public space at the heart of the mill district, overlooking the falls of the Saco River, was selected in order to reconnect the town of Biddeford both with it’s riverfront and with its heritage by drawing people into the area.The design pays tribute to the men and women who spent their entire lives laboring in the mills, as well as to the Saco River which runs through the district and which powered the mill complex throughout most of its history. The main feature is a curved water wall, cut into the existing slope, which cascades into a crescent-shaped reflecting pool surrounded by a low, granite seat wall. Groves of river birch sweep to either side of the fountain, providing shade on the upper lawn and the lower plaza while echoing the native flora of the nearby river. el e e all n ov ov Pa W Gr Gr n at aw all ch ch Se rW gL Bir Bir ite pin ate an er er za Slo Riv Riv Pla Gr W COREEN SCHMIDT MILL DISTRICT MEMORIAL FOUNTAIN – BIDDEFORD, MAINE : SITE SECTION MEDIUM : PENCIL ON MYLAR RENDERING : PRISMACOLOR
