Longwood University Joan of Arc Statue Plaza

Longwood University Joan of Arc Statue Plaza

A series of interventions transformed this corridor prior to the 2016 mock debates and was completed on a tight and unforgiving schedule. Those projects include a new pedestrian entryway to Brock Commons, Beale Pavilion which is a new multiuse garden structure at the intersection of Brock Commons and Wheeler Mall, a new portico/entry feature to Willett Hall, the venue for the nationally televised Vice Presidential debates, and all terminated by a newly commissioned sculpture (by Alexander Stoddart) of Joan of Arc, patroness of the University.

The end of Brock Commons is punctuated by a new bronze sculpture of Joan of Arc placed on a limestone plinth and nestled in an exedra surrounded by trees and other plantings. HG worked hand in hand with the architect to create a setting that would complement the commissioned sculpture.  The Joan of Arc Sculpture and surrounding plaza and landscape creates a terminus for Brock Commons, the central pedestrian corridor running through the center of the Longwood University Campus. HG developed plans and details for the plaza surrounding the sculpture and designed a landscape plan focused on creating a backdrop for the sculpture and this important pedestrian space and endpoint for Brock Commons.
