Tom Oslund's (BLA, 1980) landscape architecture firm, oslund.and.associates, has been selected by the Minneapolis City Council as the landscape architect for the revitalization of Peavey Plaza. Oslund's firm is known for local projects including Gold Medal Park and Target Plaza.
"Tom Oslund is already emerging as one of America's leading landscape architects," said Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak in a media release. "This community has already seen his firm's extraordinary work on Gold Medal Park, Target Plaza, and the upcoming I-35W Remembrance Garden, but I believe we are about to see his greatest project to date on one of the most important blocks in the city. oslund.and.associates has the vision it will take to create the breakthrough design we need for this critical block, but also the sensitivity it will take to represent Minneapolis and the way we live."
