The challenge is to provide a place for social interaction among disparate community groups. It should promote community involvement which will strengthen the spirit of the people and the pride of place. The design is dynamic and celebrates the culture of large outdoor gatherings.
The solution is a courtyard in Newbern which will take advantage of proximity to the public buildings and a landscape of mature hardwood trees. The green wall will showcase native plants, the barbecue pit and fireplace will facilitate community fellowship, and the crushed stone courtyard will be the hub of all activity.
