IHNA and Urban Design Studio hosted the last public display at this location of Mediative Urbanisms’ International Design Competition entries on Friday, February 5 during the First Friday Trolley Hop.
In spite of the bad weather, the event was attended by 25 – 30 people. And although a panel of experts has already officially judged the contest and awarded the prizes, we afforded the visitors an opportunity to vote for the “People’s Choice” design. Once again, Patrick Piuma, Director of the Urban Design Studio, went “above and beyond” for us and created a computerized voting system for tallying the People’s Choice ballots. The People’s Choice winners were:
- First Place (tie) – 106/conFluence, 119/Louisville Railroad District
- Second Place (tie) – 109/Beargrass Bike Park, 128/Beargrass Grown
- Third Place (tie) – 100/Walk the Line, 110/A Scenic Walkway Between City and Nature
While IHNA hopes to display the entries in the future at another location, plans have not yet been finalized. Any future plans will be announced in our Newsletter and on IHNA’s website. In the mean time, you can view the entries online by visiting www.irishhillneighbors.org and clicking on the Mediative Urbanisms link at the top. Pictures from the event is also available (see below).
This event has been a tremendous success and has brought visibility to Irish Hill. We could not, however, have done it without Urban Design Studio and Director Patrick Piuma, who so graciously offered us space and welcomed the display, making these incredible entries available to the public.
