Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

When JMMDS and 3north first began our work, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden's CEO and President Frank Robinson asked us to dream big; to suggest compelling new visions for the campus that would increase visitation, excite donors, and integrate learning opportunities throughout its eighty acres. He charged us with bringing nature closer to the guest experience and setting a new model for sustainability that would inspire the community with biophilic designs, native plantings, and water management practices. Our task was to imagine innovative and exciting elements that would uphold LGBG’s continued success over the next twenty-five years.
