New design competition seeks redesign of St Louis famous Arch grounds
on Wednesday,December 09,2009 22:12
The city of St. Louis, Missouri, is eternally linked with the iconic Gateway Arch protruding 630-fet above the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial park. Yet over the years, the area surrounding the unique structure has fallen on hard times as the economy in the Show Me State slowly fell into recession.
A new design contest sponsored by the National Park Service, seeks to revitalize the area through an improved connection to downtown St. Louis and the nearby Mississippi river.
The competition is seeking entrants from across the globe to reimagine the area as a family-friendly tourist destination that can help the region rebound from it''s economic troubles.
"This competition is a unique and important opportunity to integrate the Arch and the park surrounding it into the fabric of the city, and region and embrace the Mississippi River and its east bank," claims the superintendent of the park system. "It''s an opportunity to energize the park with new amenities and attractions. By achieving these objectives, we will design people into the area - and establish a national model for urban parks."
Originally designed by a Finnish architect in the late 1940''s, the Gateway Arch gained notoriety in 1992 when a recreational base jumper successfully leapt from the top of the structure. Though he landed safely, the jumper faced 3 months in prison.
