Rio Reimagined Slide Slam
Thursday - January 24 (reception at 5pm, program begins at 6pm.)
Please join the AIA Phoenix Metro Chapter for a slide slam style presentation from the winners of the ﬁrst of four planned Rio-Reimagined ideas competition followed by a moderated discussion.
The 2018 competition was an ideas competition encompassing the 58-mile geographic span of the 8 communities as they partner in creating a vibrant, urban riverfront for the valley. After Jury deliberation, the winners were announced on November 28th during the annual Phoenix Metro Wrap Up. The 4 visions offer different ideas of creatively linking existing, planned and proposed infrastructure with placemaking. These 4 selected entries, from over 20, form a foundation for discourse about the Rio Salado’s future.
Moderated by the 2018 Ideas Competition jury chair, Darren Petrucci with presentations by:
Michael Kraus, Krause Architecture + Kartika Rachmawati, Bright View
Suresh Raghavendra PE, AECOM and Jay Hicks PLA, ASLA, Dig Studio
