Project for Public Spaces is redesigning Zion and Breen's design for Triangle Park in Lexington, KY.  The park was a notable icon for the city and for Zion and Breen over the last few decades, but the owners have decided it is due for an update.  The NJ firm, Zion and Breen, was well known for modernist landscape architecture and a pretty extensive knowledge of fountains.  The wall of fountains at Triangle Park required a massive pumping system and looked great when lit at night, which is part of why this park has been an Lexington Landmark and photographic icon for 30 years.  But Zion and Breen also designed the famous waterwall that we saw this weekend at Paley Park (see below).
