This project created open space for passive recreation. The brick plaza commemorates the story of writing of “The Braintree Instructions” by John Adam. In the Instructions John Adams laid out a legal argument that the Stamp Act passed by the British Parliament was unconstitutional because the colonist lacked representation in parliament. Authoring of the Instructions marks the beginning of John Adams’ political activism. The construction of the 525-square foot plaza at the southwestern point of the First Congregational Church property on Elm Street included the design and installation of a four-sided panel kiosk, planting of flower beds and installation of park benches.
