DREXEL LAW MEMORIAL GARDEN
In the City of Philadelphia, nestled between the Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law and the W.W. Hagerty Library sits a 2,500 square-foot, shaded piece of land. The existing site parallels the bustling Market Street streetscape livened with the walking University community, existing honey locust trees, and diverse food trucks. In its previous life, the site was home to sculpture and vegetation, known for its tranquility. Now, in the hopes of becoming a dedicated garden, the site exists with a blanket of lawn with topography sloping towards the back building façade.
By fronting Market Street, the land has become more of a passed-by amenity that is found to be a calm space from the street sidewalk. Due to its notable location and relationship to the School of Law, the land has the opportunity to become a private, dedicated garden for the School as well as other Drexel University disciplines; in return, serving as an outdoor amenity, a place of solitude, and positive Market Street development.
