Thank you, The Gateway Arch Reconsidered Wednesday, August 21, 2019 11:30 AM Networking and Social 12:00 PM Special Presentation 12:00 PM Presentation 1:10 PM Walk to Arch Location: Old Spaghetti Factory 727 N 1st Street Saint Louis, MO 63102 Architectural and urban historian Michael Allen examines the urbanist consequences of building the Gateway Arch, including the obliteration of an emergent creative loft district, a political push that was based more on self-interest than good design and a series of choices that disconnected the center city from the riverfront. It's too late to change the outcome of history but not too late to learn from the way decisions about how to build the city's greatest monument -- and first large scale mass demolition project -- were made.
