Many Have Come and Gone, But All Left Their Mark
An abstraction of a bald cypress dome and “spring” help to tell the story of the natural landscape in the heart of downtown Orlando. Originally the "site of beginning" for the layout of the city and county and the location of three previous courthouses, this adaptive reuse of building and site was created as a major public gathering space. Frederick Halback* led a talented team in connecting the space with historic and cultural reminders, redesign of Wall Street Plaza pedestrian mall, and the Lymmo transit stop.
