Re-Frame Toledo

NORTH COAST DESIGN COMPETITION
First Prize Award

Re-Frame Toledo is a proposal to reimagine how a deindustrialized
cityscape can become a highly active and engaging series of public
spaces, mixed-use neighborhoods, and nature reserves that help benefit
the local ecology. The magnitude in which dredge material is collected
in Toledo can be seen as an enormous asset to the city. By incorporating
phytoremediation into the dredge cycle and restoring a riparian zone,
natural systems continuously clean water while restoring native
habitats. Formerly the product of a manufacturing and infrastructural
landscape, the riverfront can be reassembled with dredge material to
delineate relevant urban and landscape context with the Maumee River.
