The Interstate 71 corridor, the southern gateway into the City of Columbus, has long been the dumping ground for waste of all types and home to environmentally degrading industries. This project attempted to find the potential in the place and mitigate the existing land uses.
Much of the land use in question; land fill, animal rendering, quarrying, power generation, and interstate highway, were adjacent to the Scioto River. The design concept created new uses for the affected land, mitigating the existing environmental concerns and improving the aesthetics of the southern gateway.
