Urban Design Masterplan for Nashville
Competition | Winter 2014
Urban Land Institute | Nashville, TN
Size: 125 acres
The Gerald D. Hines competition hosted by ULI called for proposals to transform Sulpher Dell, a neighborhood North of Nashville’s Downtown. The challenge was to create a healthy and resilient community while considering river flood events.
EcoStream is a multipurpose infrastructure system disguised as an iconic public park for visitors and locals of Nashville. The design is ubiquitously composed of three elements: History, Health, and the Environment.
Central to the design is a daylit stream that not only channels flood waters and cleans Cumberland River, it also activates and completes a pedestrian loop, connecting Sulpher Dell to Downtown.
Aside from my contributions as team leader, I worked primarily on design, research, diagrams, and graphics.
