The transit center’s busway cuts through a newly planted forest of native beeches, hornbeams, and oaks. Only a quarter of the site could be planted, so GV created a dense, unremitting plant pattern, to create the feeling that surfaces and structures were carved from an established landscape. Plant areas will evolve from even geometries to wilder, layered densities.
