  1. 1. RIVERCIRCLE BEHNISCH TEAM A Strategic Perspective The RIVERCIRCLE urban landscape concept proposes a durable framework for the evolution of the Arch grounds within the larger milieu of St. Louis and East St. Louis addressing the many current stakeholder interests on both sides of the river. The design strategy of the Great Rivers Expo and the RIVERCIRCLE will provide the physical framework for visitors to experience the many new and diverse places and events. 2015 To achieve this goal we will make sure that all planning and design proposals emerging out of our Rivercircle! concept will be based on the close relationship between people’s natural use of public spaces and the physical character and form of the built environment while embracing the unique qualities of the local context on both sides of the Mississippi River. Rivercircle shall 1960 open up, invite and include people, provide different activities and possibilities and thereby invite and ensure multiplicity and diversity. 2010 Great Rivers Expo Begins Memorial Competition 1904 World’s Fair, St. Louis 1948 National Expansion 1965 National Expansion 2065 100th Anniversary 1904 Summer Olympics 2015 50th Anniversary Memorial Opens Celebration Celebration 1900 1950 2000 2050 GREAT RIVERS EXPO – INTERNATIONAL BUILDING AND LANDSCAPE EXHIBITION The RIVERCIRCLE! | NATIONAL MALL concept, framing urban, landscape, architectural and artistic activity, emerges from a sustaining vision of integrated regional development, an encircling strategic plan and organization we propose as the GREAT RIVERS EXPO – THE INTERNATIONAL BUILDING AND LANDSCAPE EXHIBITION ST.
