Caption: The MVVA Team Arch proposal - Framing a Modern Masterpiece - "Successful city connections give people two inseparable things: ways to traverse urban obstacles and reasons to want to. Our landscape-based approach to the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial provides both, establishing physical and programmatic continuity between downtown St. Louis, the Arch grounds, the levee, and the Illinois bank. By reorienting itself, physically and culturally, toward the life of the city, and by pioneering constructed urban ecologies, the Memorial serves as a 21st-century paradigm for urban National Parks - and that, in turn, makes it a foundation for sustained social and economic vitality on both sides of the Mississippi.
