Genesis is proud to announce that the urban redesign for Downtown Tampa submitted by the international design team led by Luis Mola of Mola + Winkelmueller Architekten GmbH BDA, of which Genesis was a member, was chosen as one of three winning designs for the [re]stitch Tampa Design Competition. Our submission was chosen from a field of over 40 international submittals by teams from all over the U.S., China, Australia, and Europe.
The University of South Florida, in conjunction with the National Endowment for the Arts invited designers to participate in an international urban design competition to envision a new interface between the City of Tampa, Florida and the Hillsborough River. Utilizing Landscape Urbanism as a lens, [re]stitch Tampa seeks to refocus the Hillsborough River as a SOCIAL, ECONOMIC, and ECOLOGIC spine for Tampa.
Genesis’ Tampa staff involved with the project were Kevin Mineer, AICP, Craig Anderson, Kyle Thornton, P.E., Bruce T. Kaschyk, AICP, and James Gilman, RLA, AICP. Genesis provided environmental and regulatory research as well as ground truthing and critical input as local Engineers, Researchers, and Planners.
Other members of this winning team included Miguel Prados Sanchez and Pablo Benitez Adame Arquitectos of Spain, Kronawitter Urban Ecology of New York and Berlin, JFS Engineering of New Jersey, Buro Happold of Berlin, and Krafft-Wehberg Landscape Architecture and Development.
