Stopped by M&R on a rainy day and found the Birch trees absolutely glowing. I helped to design this plaza in 2006 for my friend PH, when I sketched a grove of trees and a collection of stones. I wanted something asymmetrical to play off of the rectilinear walls. I also thought there was a need for an interesting view from the balconies. The mass of Birches adds texture all year round and great fall color. The larger stones came from a foundation, and were quarried in Indiana. It’s a great place to sit in nice weather, and I’ve seen several photo shoots utilizing the space.
Local artist Rod Lindauer did the sculpture. All in all, a nice little space in Lex.
