About the Event
Calling All Landscape Architects!
Please join ASLA Connecticut, The City of Bridgeport, Groundwork Bridgeport, UConn School of Landscape Architecture, The Trust for Public Land, and the National Park Service Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance Program for a design charrette along the Yellow Mill Corridor in Bridgeport, CT.
Following the introductory Site Walk of this three-part program, the second part of this program will feature a Design Charrette between local landscape architecture professionals, UConn students, and Yellow Mill community members. This charrette will take place on Friday, March 31 at 3:00 p.m. in the Arcade Mall (1001 Main Street, Bridgeport, CT). On-street parking is available and dinner will be provided. Please ask about ADA-accessibility. Bring comfortable attire for an environment that is NOT climate controlled and your favorite tools and materials for design drawing.
Design Challenge: To create short-term activations and long-term design proposals for a select site along the Yellow Mill Corridor. Proposals should provide connectivity for the Bridgeport Waterfront Pathway; heal and protect the shoreline using nature-based solutions; and create a place for all Bridgeport community members to relax and enjoy the waterfront.
Desired Outcomes: Design teams to create preliminary design concepts side-by-side with community partners; team leaders define next steps and decide on schedule for meeting during the interim. The ideas produced during the Design Charrette will be developed further by UConn LA students as part of their senior capstone course. Final student presentations to the community will occur in the first week of May.
Interim: Teams meet as needed virtually or at UConn to refine design concepts.
For accommodations, more information, and to RSVP to the Design Charrette, please email Stephanie Stroud: firstname.lastname@example.org
