Two internationally acclaimed architects, Mark Lakeman and Mar Ricketts, are co-designing the labyrinth in consultation with project participants.
Mark Lakeman’s visionary community-based design aesthetic has inspired communities across North America by demonstrating how architectural and urban design choices can play an active role in promoting people’s connections with one another and with the natural world.
