Flowing Wells Library

The Flowing Wells Library Project was a coordinated effort between the City of Tucson and Pima County. The site is dominated by major roadways on two sides, making landscape an important component in enhancing the visitor's experience. Our team carefully considered pedestrian and bicycle access, and opportunities for water harvesting, shade, and linkages to related facilities. Rainwater harvesting was at the forefront of WDG's design goals; site runoff from the roof and parking areas is directed to a sequence of basins, including a tree-shaded area near the pedestrian path. WDG provided landscape, planting, and irrigation plans.
