Principal of Donald MacDonald Architects
Until he was commissioned for the Business 40 Project, MacDonald was best known for designing three of the nation’s most noted bridge structures: the Cooper River Bridge in Charleston, SC; The San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, San Francisco, CA; and the retrofit of the Golden Gate Bridge. Most recently, he is the visionary behind Tilikum Crossing, the new pedestrian and bicycle bridge in Portland, Oregon.
Corridor Planners and Designers
Under the direction of project manager Glenn Walters, Creative Corridors Coalition hired Design Workshop in 2011 to conduct both an intensive public engagement process and to create the Visionary Master Plan and Design Guidelines that will influence the landscape of Winston-Salem for generations.
Based in the heart of downtown Winston-Salem for more than two decades, Stimmel Associates is an accomplished Landscape Architecture, Land Planning and Civil Engineering firm serving the Triad and the Southeast. With Christy Turner leading this project, they have been instrumental in the application of the Creative Corridors design guidelines to the realities of both the Business 40 and Research Parkway projects.
