STIMSON Winter Wonderland

February finally brought a beautiful winter weekend to New England. One of our Principals, Eddie Marshall, was on Cape Cod and captured two of our previous projects white washed with snow. The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, where its weathered steel runnel provided a stark contrast with its white covered hills, and Teaticket Park, where the low lying wet areas appeared to vanish into soft blues with whites. The wet snow combined with cold evening temperatures caused it to freeze to the vegetation, creating a unique visual experience of our built landscapes.
