Great Rivers Greenway, an organization dedicated to constructing greenways—scenic outdoor spaces connecting areas of the city—is hosting a design competition to help create “Chouteau Greenway,” an area that will connect Forest Park to the St. Louis Gateway Arch.
I’ve got a confession to make. I’ve never been to the Arch. In my four years as a student here at Washington University, I have never actually seen the symbol of this wonderful city in person. I also don’t feel too bad about it. Why is the Arch so important? Seriously, it’s just an arch.
Are you sick of waiting around for graduation with family members invading your personal space? St. Louis may not have Times Square or the Golden Gate Bridge, but it still has plenty of attractions. Scene has selected four locations to entertain them and keep the pressure off of you.
In 2015, a newly designed modern park will showcase a St. Louis historic icon: the Gateway Arch. A 10-month international design competition that started in December 2009 will select a winning architectural design among portfolios submitted by professionals around the country and the world.
So where are students planning to go and what are they going to do during these days?
