Research Triangle Park

Project details:
The Research Triangle Park (RTP) is one of the most prominent high-tech research and development parks in the United States, centred on the three hub cities of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill, and their research universities. RTP was created in 1959 by state and local governments, academic establishments and local businesses and is now home to over 200 companies employing 50,000 workers, including the second largest IBM operation in the world, and GlaxoSmithKline’s largest R & D centre, all within 10 square miles of pine forest setting. Although buildings and roadways divide and traverse the park, expanses of the original forest remain, providing an attractive outdoor environment for the staff to use at break times and even for informal meetings. RailRoad seating was chosen for one such area as its inherent flexible design allows endless configuration options that could be arranged around the trees and other existing site features. The Loop version - with its round-ended timber slats and circular post supports - visually complemented the environment, and was the simplest of the RailRoad styles to supply with extended legs to allow in-ground installation on the undulating ground. The steelwork was finished in a vibrant colour, to contrast with the deeper tones of the pines. Letterform cycle stands spelling ‘EAT’ were installed near to the seating, with other words placed elsewhere around the park.
