The Urban Green


Commissioned by the Philadelphia Zoo to create a new meeting place, The Urban Green is a unique combination of artful elements and topographic design. Here, families are seen traversing a modern boardwalk, jumping a dry creek bed, climbing stacked lumber stairs, and exploring sloped terraces. The custom-designed 40 foot mural and food trucks covered in artwork make this destination an authentic urban oasis.
