Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport: Baton Rouge, LA

Client: Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport Commission

Summary: Dana Brown & Associates, inc. was commissioned to renaturalize Bayou Monte Sano, which had been straightened and lined with riprap or concrete. It flows directly in front of the airport terminal and is seen by every passenger and employee as they travel on the entry roads that cross the bayou. Though space was limited, Dana Brown & Associates, inc. redesigned the bayou with flatter side slopes and a sinuous, curving alignment, all planted with native plants that can tolerate wetness when the bayou is full and flowing, and dry conditions during drought periods. Dana Brown & Associates, inc. also designed a comprehensive wayfinding/signage network that brands a new image for the growing Baton Rouge Metro Airport.
