OLIN has been commissioned to develop a design for a new 400-acre park in Southern Indiana, along the northern shore of the Ohio River. The project will rehabilitate and transform an expanse of waterfront lands, which for decades have been occupied with landfills and industrial facilities, into a rich cultural and civic asset for Southern Indiana and the Louisville, Kentucky metropolitan area. The park was first envisioned by River Heritage Conservancy, a non-profit organization dedicated to implementing and managing a world-class park system along the northern shoreline of the Ohio Riverfront. The design will seek to regenerate and reforest the landscape, which has been dramatically shaped by both human intervention and the forces of nature. The project will also celebrate the land’s rich ecological and cultural legacy, which dates back to First Peoples’ communities established a millennium ago. Read OLIN’s full press release here.
See you next year!
