Texas Rangers Park
Arlington, TX

In the rolling landscape of North Texas, an elevated plateau of earth rises to become a new regional park incorporating a major league baseball stadium. The ecology of the site and its suburban nature prompted a new way of thinking about building a gathering place that would serve the population of an entire region. The project is designed to deal with the multitude of issues inherent in such a program: enormous numbers of cars, radical population curves, economic viability, creation of a sense of order in the landscape and promotion of awareness about the natural ecology of the site.

Mr. Gates acted as lead designer on this project at Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, PC.
