What would pedestrian oriented streets look like in EaDo?
This was the question posed by the Rice Design Alliance this Janurary in the rdAGENTS Design Charrette, titled X-Change: EaDo Crossroads. Architect, planner, artist and student teams spend their saturday redesigning a block in EaDo that illustrated how proactive design solutions can yield active, engaging, and safer streets. A juror of community leaders and architects selected the winning design by Asakura Robinson.
As a follow up, Asakura Robinson, East Downtown Management District and Rice Design Alliance are collaborating to jump start the proposed phase one of this redesign through a street experiment.
