Moule + Polyzoides Architects and Urbanists led the project to develop Taylor Crossing, a mixed-use office, retail, and residential development alongside the Snake River in Idaho Falls, Idaho. The Master Plan proposes a community that utilizes New Urbanist principles, including tree-lined and pedestrian friendly streets, engaging civic squares, dense urban development, and a form based building code. Kathy Poole worked collaboratively with CPS Landscape Architects to develop the public landscapes. Ms. Poole’s primary role was to ensure an activated waterfront that also protecting and restoring the riverside. By integrating planted bioswales within the streets and squares and coordinating it with significant stone sculptural elements, the project elevates the importance of water and its wise use in this high desert environment.
