Envision Little Rock
In late 2012, a Little Rock landscape architect approached studioMAIN about collaborating to present a design project as an open competition. The competition was intended to engage the public in future development alternatives for a neglected portion of the downtown Little Rock landscape. Many stakeholders including the City of Little Rock, the Little Rock Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, the Hanger Hill community, Little Rock Parks and Recreation, Metroplan and the UALR Emerging Analytics Center worked together with studioMAIN to present the competition.
The competition challenged public and professional design community to generate innovative concepts for a neglected portion of the east downtown little rock landscape. Twelve entries were received and through public voting, over 1800 people cast their vote to determine the competition’s winners.
We hope to continue Envision Little Rock in 2017 and will keep you posted.
