Lots, PXSTL proposal by Freecell Architecture.

The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts and the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts are happy to announce Freecell Architecture as the winner of this urban design-build competition to reimagine a vacant lot in St. Louis' Grand Center cultural district.

Among the three finalists announced in June, Freecell Architecture was chosen for its innovative design and focus on community engagement positioning Grand Center as a hub for social and cultural activity. Their proposal features components for active audience participation, transforms the vacant lot into a gathering space, and is architecturally resonant with the Pulitzer's Tadao Ando-designed building which is located across the street. For more information, read the full news release and the recent articles in The Architect's Newspaper, ArchDaily, and Artforum.
