As Senior Project Manager and Lead Designer at Walker Macy, Dorothy led the design of this parking area at Lewis and Clark College, which works with the institutions sustainable practices. The parking is gently tucked into existing woods, removing as few trees as possible, and requiring extensive construction oversight. The design also utilizes local basalt, permeable pavers, recycled asphalt and wood repurposed from site trees. Stormwater planting and native understory planting replaces invasive ivy and improves habitat.
