2016 Memorial Park Update

Richmond, VA May 31 - June 4, 2016:  Two professors and three graduate students in history, graphic design and architecture from University of Massachusetts at Amherst and the Center for Design Engagement spent a week in Richmond to facilitate a design charrette - essentially a series of public meetings and designing sessions - to expand on the concepts developed in the 2015 Community Proposal for Shockoe Bottom. The end product gives us further visual representation of the vision for the nine-acre memorial park.

Why outsiders or "come-heres"? Maybe we shift the question to What is it about that Richmond's history that draws so many people from around the country here?
