ACTIVATING THE URBAN ALLEY THROUGH ARCHITECTURE
To enhance a new downtown alleyway in the heart of Downtown Chattanooga’s City Center, River City Company, Cogent Studio and Public Art Chattanooga is seeking unique, innovative design concepts with a cohesive artistic vision from multi-disciplinary design teams. Through an open RFP process, 45 proposals were submitted representing 11 countries including the United States, Italy, France, Canada, Malaysia, India and China.
Three semi-finalists have been selected to further develop site specific designs to permanently activate the proposed alleyway and create a vibrant pedestrian corridor that is habitable and can be adapted for use as a small public event space. A winning team and concept will be announced in Spring 2018 and installed Fall of 2018. Passageways 2.0 is made possible by generous grants from the Benwood and Lyndhurst Foundations.
