MEDIATIVE URBANISMS
The Irish Hill Neighborhood Association exhibits entries to
International Design Competition

The Irish Hill Neighborhood Association is pleased to announce the display of the Mediative Urbanisms competition boards at the Urban Design Studio.  First prize, as selected by a five member jury, was a concept submitted by a team from Paris, France titled “A Scenic Walkway.”  All 20 entries can actually be seen at the Urban Design Studio for an undetermined amount of time or on the IHNA website, www.irishhillneighbors.org.

Mediative Urbanisms
, an international open ideas competition, was created to encourage critical thinking for a 30-acre post-industrial site located on Lexington Road, Louisville, KY…and it was SUCCESSFUL! IHNA now invites the public to witness the excitement of the possibilities for the site through the eyes of urban designers, architects, landscape designers, artists and creative citizens.

Frequently playing  hosts to planning and design charettes and discussion forums that help increase the level of public involvement, the Urban Design Studio (UDS) is the perfect venue to house the display.  The gallery space is open to the public Monday – Friday from 10AM – 4PM or by appointment with an IHNA representative.  UDS is located at 507 S. 3rd Street.  For more information about the Urban Design Studio, contact  http://udstudio.org. or call 502.587.7015.

If you would like more information on the Mediative Urbanisms competition or to schedule an appointment with an IHNA representative, contact Chandler Bainter at irishhill@techemail or call, 905.4342.
