Barry Howard Limited small logo Master Plan
"It is a rare occasion that all funds are immediately available to implement every aspect of a proposed Cultural Attraction. A fully articulated Master Plan executed at the outset, however, provides a blueprint for cost-effective and time-efficient phasing after completion of first phase construction".

The long-term Master Plan for the Niagara Frontier State Park was entitled "Options For The Future," because it not only addressed every aspect of the project mission, from the restoration of Frederick Law Olmsted's original site plan, to a range of interpretive, circulation and site management issues, but it provided a detailed ten-year implementation plan for the park. This office headed a multi-disciplinary team incorporating architecture, landscape architecture, land use management, traffic engineering and environmental assessment.


 

 

Amongst the various interpretive presentations within the new Visitor Center are interactive experiences that bring the rich heritage of the Park into focus.

HARRY S TRUMAN DAM AND VISITOR CENTER, WARSAW, MISSOURI*
  Harry S Truman Dam Project

 

 

A vast new recreational resource resulted from the damming of the Pomme de Terre River in northwest Missouri and the subsequent impoundment of the Harry S Truman Reservoir. From this resource, our office created a Master Plan for a unique interpretive center, powerhouse presentation, and a system of twenty-two public parks.

 

 

 

A re-creation of Jones Bog, site of macro-fossil remains from the end of the dinosaur era, forms the centerpiece of the Truman Visitor Center.
