Arch Charrette Exhibit Reception Tonight (12/3/08)

December 3, 2008 Downtown 2 Comments

Last month the St. Louis Riverfront/Arch Grounds Interdisciplinary Student Charrette (flyer) was held at the Mansion House downtown. Tonight is the opening reception with the final boards on display at the gallery space at the Landmark’s Association in the Lammert Building at 911 Washington Ave.  The reception is from 5pm – 8:30pm and the exhibit runs now through January 3, 2008.

I was there on the day they started working and for their presentations.  I was promised their materials would be posted online but to date I have not been able to track down the location.  There were some really good ideas and some bad ideas.  Most recognized I-70 as a major, barrier along with an unfriendly Memorial Drive.

Some kept the highway and shockingly one team called for more destruction of downtown by having park tentacles reaching into the city.

Check out the exhibit & reception.  I’ll continue to track down the online versions of the presentations.
