Across the Market, Below the Sky, Up the River
Site: Downtown Redding, CA

Client: City of Redding and Renaissance Redding
This plaza design for a downtown redevelopment reinvigorates a leftover pedestrian mall space. This project celebrates the removal of the roof over the mall and the reintegration of this pedestrian space with the nearby urban fabric. It has several components: a river-like bench, flora and fauna emblems, a water element that engages the existing fountain, ground pavers referencing the once and future businesses, and shade structures with images of Redding from the sky. Together, these components comprise a story of the nature and culture of Redding.
