Boston- and Los Angeles-based firm Stoss drafts a proposal for a long-awaited urban greenway in the City of St. Louis. True to its name, the envisioned structure takes cues from loops and stitches -- a strategical format which allows it to be highly flexible and easily adaptable to the existing architectural infrastructure of St. Louis.
The proposed urban greenway spans from the Gateway Arch on the East end to the downtown core of the city. The structure extends to offer a physical connection to Foster Park and Washington University, which are situated on the Western side.
With its meticulously designed urban greenway, Stoss is able to build a structure that allows the city to fluidly communicate, while offering a place for recreational activities -- jogging and biking, for example.
