Gilkey Square is a site proposal as part of a design competition aimed at reimagining the Pruitt-Igoe site in St. Louis. The site is a vacant, heavily forested area in the heart of a declining St. Louis neighborhood that once held an iconic public housing complex. The competition asked for innovative ideas to reuse the site.
When: Winter, 2012
What did I do: I designed the initial site plan for the site, focusing on the intersection of area streets on a new, major public space: Gilkey Square.
I also created four housing typologies for the site using Google Sketchup. Using those housing typologies and other commercial buildings, I created two renderings for the site. These are all displayed in the gallery below.
