Urban Design Award

The Linden Street Pavers

2’ x 2’ x 1”

Granite sidewalk pavers with historical themes, designed by Susan K. Dailey, win an Urban Design Award in the “Urban Fragments” Category in 2013 (City of Fort Collins Annual Urban Design Awards).

Once the designs were complete, the pavers were sandblasted, and then etched with a black stone dye.  The City of Fort Collins, Art in Public Places Program commissioned twelve paver designs depicting local historic milestones, focusing on the original “Fort” site in particular. The pavers are installed in the sidewalk, spaced out along the blocks on either side of Linden Street (from the Linden and Swallow Streets intersection-in the Old Town area).  The imagery of the pavers interacts with interpretative signage, to help educate and inform visitors, students and onlookers, about Fort Collins history.
