West Bottoms Reborn: A Vision Study For A System Of Public Spaces

50.00

This publication is the final and comprehensive account of a two-year long study for the system of public spaces for the West Bottoms Area of Kansas City. The question of public space remains an elusive design subject. This study was born out of a desire to counter the impending and eventually gentrifying change of the study area and stake out the elements of the original urban territory to be held in common as a public realm. It centered on the conceptual premise of ‘place-keeping’ as opposed to ‘place-making’ intent on drawing out and capturing the essence of the divergent present and reading into it possibilities for critical design interventions where any innovative outcomes would remain inextricably bound by the same genetic roots [of the place.]
