Be sure to stop by the Old 502 Winery at 120 South 10th Street on Thursday, March 26 for what is shaping up to be the top urbanism event so far in 2015. The Louisville chapter of the Interaction Design Association (IxDA) and City Collaborative are hosting the Future Urban Spaces Meetup from 6:00 to 8:00p.m. and will discuss one of the most challenging issues facing Louisville today: the Ninth Street Divide.
According to the organizers:
We’re looking for makers & shakers of all kinds. Interactive designers, landscape designers, experience designers, light designers, urban planners, data geeks, architects, sculptors, metalworkers, woodworkers, gamers, electrical engineers, structural engineers…ALL OF YA.
If you are creative & have cool ideas, come take a walk with us & come up with ideas to help bridge the gap between West Main Street and Portland. Pie in the sky…what would your expertise add to a project?
We’ll start by going over the city’s future plans and talk about goals, obstacles and frustrations from local business owners and residents.
Then we’ll take a walk & we’ll talk about those same things from your perspective & finally collect ideas on what we could do collectively to address what we come up with.
Because of limited space, it’s recommended that you RSVP on the event’s Meetup page. You can also stay up to date on the event’s Facebook page. Drone photography of the area will be provided by the Overhead Group to better study the area. The event’s gorgeous poster was designed by J. Jonny Shaw. This event shouldn’t be missed!
