So often, we receive messages from social groups, families, histories, media, and cultural norms that tell us to hide our pains and give the world only our best selves. This pressure to always be “on” leaves a lot of people—including myself—navigating this world in silence about the struggles we face. For some, it may be a hidden sickness. For others, it may be a financial challenge. And for more, it may simply be struggles with insecurity, confidence, inadequacy, or even mental health.
De Nichols is a member of the Stoss Landscape Urbanism team, which won the 2018 Chouteau Greenway Design competition launched by Great Rivers Greenway with unanimous decision of it jury.
St. Louis – May 2, 2018 –The Chouteau Greenway Design Competition partners and jury have selected the team led by Stoss Landscape Urbanism to refine their conceptual plans for a new greenway to connect Forest Park and the Gateway Arch.
Four teams were chosen in January to compete and were given 90 days to develop conceptual plans for the Chouteau Greenway. Teams submitted their plans in early April for public feedback and presented their ideas to the jury and community last week.
“The teams’ responses to the design and community goals indicate their understanding of the complexity and transformative nature of the project to St. Louis,” said Don Stastny, Competition Manager. “Their receptivity to the community concerns and interests was apparent and will be important in the next steps of design refinement.”
In the deliberations that followed, the Stoss Team was unanimously chosen as the team to participate in the next stage of the competition. The jury provided comments about each team, suggestions for refinement of the chosen team’s concept and overall recommendations; the full jury report is available online.
“The team has gusto – not just talent, but also passion for the project,” said the jury. “Their successful response to the goals is due to their strong team, clear framework, and flexibility to work with the project partners, the community and also institutions. The outcomes in their presentation are not solutions but provide a starting point for dialog and design.”
