Design Competition for St. Louis Arch Grounds

I’m originally from St. Louis, so I’m glad to see that there is a design competition to redesign the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial – aka, the Arch grounds. They’ve narrowed the competition down to five international teams, who are making formal presentations today. The winner will be announced on September 24th.
