This project is a proposal for the revitalization of downtown Rapid City. Rapid City has for the past years been growing outwards. There have been improvements to building facades. There have been new buildings constructed. There have been entire building renovations and additions. One thing that is lacking is planned, designed, and inviting public exterior spaces. My project recognizes the need for these spaces and outlines a core area to begin the revitalization process. The site provides countless possibilities with rich history, diverse demographics, and an ever increasing tourist base. The goal is to create a place that has both a strong sense of community and a comfortable image, as well as a setting and activities and uses that collectively add up to something more than the sum of its often simple parts.
