Design Residency 2019
Life on the Edge: Beyond Urban Redevelopment: The Transformation of a Living Community through Understanding and Design
The 2019 RDG Design Residency will explore the multiple forces which combine to impact the stability of urban and civil structures and focus on the eastern “edge” of the Douglas Avenue Corridor in Des Moines, Iowa. Through a critical study of this unique urban environment, the Residency will lead to a more sensitive awareness of the people that live, work, play, and travel through this changing place in our community. Graduate and Post-Doctoral students will be immersed in complex issues facing this community to re-imagine and reinvigorate this urban neighborhood in connection with Greater Des Moines. The work, including conceptual architectural design of multi-family housing, as well as the surrounding landscape, will serve as a representative model for other communities, both large and small, across the country.
Like so many of our urban corridors that developed in the early automobile era, the Douglas Avenue Corridor experienced decline as it has aged. The 2019 RDG Design Residency will look closely at the myriad factors that affect this community to develop opportunities for its sustainable future.
