LightScape Garden is a proposed educational and community space for the 1,500-resident Carroll Avenue Quebec Terrace (CAQT) apartment community in the Long Branch area of Silver Spring. As one element of a 2010 community master plan, LightScape Garden fulfills a community wish for a gathering space at the community center operated by YMCA Youth and Family services. Both day and night, LightScape Garden will infuse the community with a sense of connection, ownership and pride. We believe that this project will become a CAQT landmark and a catalyst for ongoing community investment, fostering meaningful engagement, safety and connection.

developed by CAQT and Arts on the Block (AOB), partnered with YMCA, design assistants: Sadie Dempsey and Russell Holstine
