In December, Ed led a team, with Christian Gabriel of Thomas Balsley Associates, in the final stage of the Des Moines Water Works Park Competition.

We put together an ambitous proposal that was only made possible by a fantastic London/US based team. Thank you to Christian Gabriel (Thomas Balsley Associates), Brett Douglas (Genus), Fred Schwartz (Frederic Schwartz Architects), Steven Handel (Green Shield Ecology), John Paul Goedken (JP-SE), Mark Land (Snyder Associates), Bryan Bertrand (CPMI), Tim Marshall (ETM), Helena Rivera (A Small Studio), and Matt Parker and Leo Thom (Room 60). Finally, without the design critique and stunning drawings of  Aaron Carpenter, Harry Bix, and Joe Sanders this proposal would have only been a jumble of ideas. Thank you.
