Donald Kendall Sculpture Garden
In 1970, the world headquarters of PepsiCo opened in an office building designed by Edward Durell Stone (architect of Washington’s Kennedy Center). To complement this magnificent building, three prominent landscape designers were chosen to lay out the surrounding grounds—E.D. Stone Jr. (the architect’s son), Russell Sage, and Francois Goffinet. The resulting landscape incorporates 45 sculptures, including pieces by Alexander Calder, George Segal, and David Smith. A “Golden Path,” the inspiration of Russell Page, winds its way past the sculptures and through the various landscapes, offering walkers an opportunity to see the art—both natural and manmade—from many perspectives. The grounds include various gardens, water features, and woodland areas.
