Remember those beautiful birch ornaments we showed you in a recent blog post? Well, they’re up along south Broad Street from Market Street to Lombard Street! The ornaments were designed by the PHS Public Landscape Design and Management team and produced by PennDesign students in an effort to spread holiday cheer while offering a subtle reminder that the public landscape takes careful planning and constant maintenance.
In a recent article on PlanPhilly.com, Nancy Goldenberg, senior vice president of programs and planning at PHS said, “I think the average person walking down the street doesn’t think about who’s maintaining the public landscape. We wanted to do something this year that raises the visibility and profile of the projects PHS has done.”
Kudos to the planners and designers and may next year bring even more decorations and awareness.
