2010 Fall

Situated on the shoreline of a struggling mill town, this proposed waterfront intervention creates a new district with a train station centerpiece. Beginning at the east end of the site with several residential blocks, the project cascades toward the waterfront with an open market and series of piers extending into the bay. From a series of object buildings at the top of the site, the program and forms diffuse into an open network of casual programs and events.The project is sited at the location of several convergent networks,including local rail access, an underdeveloped riverfront park system, a major state highway.Utilizing community-building strategies embedded in the city’s early Olmsted plan, the proposed district weaves together disparate elements of the historic arts district, creating a strategic link to the returning rail infrastructure and offering a new city center. The project proposes a new identify for the community colliding its industrial past and a new connection to the river, creating a unique economic and cultural asset.
