The Riparian Corridor

The site in Cleveland Ohio is situated on the edge of Rockefeller Park and the Doan Brook. It can be seen as a missing piece in the riparian corridor stretching from the edge of Case Western reserve Univerity campus all the way to Lake Erie. My building scheme would allow for the site to be largley planted with trees and naturally occouring plants, adding to this protective barrier along the Doan Brook.

A riparian corridor is a unique plant community consisting of the vegetation growing near a river, stream, lake, lagoon or other natural body of water.
