Designing Action is an IDEAS competition to re-imagine an industrial site along Downtown Nashville’s Cumberland River, with an emphasis on creating active spaces for healthy citizens, and highlighting alternative sports and related activities. The 75 acre site has many variables to entice creative solutions. It is a brownfield disconnected from the neighborhoods of East Nashville by an elevated interstate. Almost the entire site was under water in the 2010 May flood. The site is within walking distance of several major sports, entertainment, and convention venues.
Our goal with this competition is to generate innovative ideas and concepts that could enhance the future redevelopment of riverfront property, promote active lifestyles, and increase the quality of life for all of Nashville’s citizens.
