New LOVE for a Famous Philly Park

Former Philadelphia City Planner Edmund Bacon and architect Vincent Kling established Love Park in 1965.

On the heels of the opening of Dilworth Park at Philadelphia's City Hall comes the announcement that KieranTimberlake will also participate in the redesign of nearby Love Park (officially named JFK Plaza), home of Robert Indiana's famous LOVE statue. Together with Hargreaves Associates and Pentagram, KieranTimberlake will work to re-envision this significant public space, incorporating sustainable systems, stormwater management, and high-performance building materials. The new park will retain the beloved statue as well as a water feature, landscape connecting to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, and diagonal pathways across the square.
