During the 1980s, architect Harry Wolf and landscape architect Dan Kiley transformed a riverside lot in downtown Tampa into a corporate headquarters.
The façades of Wolf’s thirty-three-story tower and two six-story cubic bank pavilions and Kiley's four-acre garden were designed based upon the Fibonacci sequence: this mathematical synthesis of building and garden resulted in a powerful and cohesive design of historical significance. Dan Kiley is arguably the most important international landscape architect of the twentieth century, and the NationsBank Plaza Park is one of Kiley's finest works. Present threats to the property include redevelopment, loss of design elements, and deferred maintenance. However, there is significant national and community support for Kiley's work, and the press and the public should continue to pressure the City of Tampa to support the preservation of Kiley's NationsBank Plaza Park in its entirety.
