Graesser, Christopher Andrew

St. Louis, like many riverfront cities around the world, has become isolated from the river upon which it was founded, the Mississippi. This thesis proposes a new riverfront transportation museum for St. Louis, as a means of reconnecting the city and the river. The museum, located in the post-industrial riverfront neighborhood of Chouteau's Landing, celebrates the city's heritage of transportation and industry that grew along the riverfront, and serves as an icon for a city seeking to remake the image of its riverfront.
