ArtSCAPE serves visitors as an experiential gateway, investigating our interconnected relationships revealed by engaging intimate associations with culture, technology, and nature. A series of linked subterranean art and ecological exhibits permeate the SITE, as well as a rooftop boardwalk facilitating views of the manipulated landscape into built form. Wildflowers are a key component serving as a link to multiple outdoor sculptural exhibits. Additionally, the stepped vegetation units act as integrated wetland purification system, filtering water runoff that spills into the River North project. The multiple pathways funnel visitors towards a 25,000 sf Pavilion sponsored by Toyota, that sits adjacent to the River North addition at the Pearl Brewery. ArtSCAPE will conduce intimate connections to culture and ecology at the Pearl Brewery, reconditioning a barren asphalt parking lot into positive sensory experiences for visitors and the surrounding local community.
