MRDC | TLS/KVA: RIVERFIRST

Minneapolis Riverfront Design Competition Finalist
Minneapolis River Design Competition - Tom Leader Studio

RIVERFIRST restores and expands the idea of confluence to include the joining of healthy bio-filtered storm water tributaries with the river, flows of transportation and information, flows of people, capital and green revenue sources. We join renewal of the Minneapolis riverfront with municipal needs to grow a green economy, provide jobs, join communities with healthy local food and improve the ecological health of the Mississippi River in the 21st century.
