Phillips Farevaag Smallenberg 2009

The iconic Olympic Speed Skating Facility is set in a landscape that contributes to a vibrant and integrated waterfront development, a legacy public amenity in this rapidly urbanizing part of Richmond. As one of the key members of the multi-disciplinary design team, Phillips Farevaag Smallenberg  addressed the transition from building to the river’s edge, provided an urban ‘town square’ at its entrance, and improved stormwater quality with a detention and remediation pond which incorporates Janet Echelman's dramatic "Water Garden" sculpture.
