St Louis MO

PXSTL is a community arts and urban incentive created by the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts and the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis.

Our design, Lots, the first installation of PXSTL, is a temporary pavilion conceived of as an overhead spanning structure that frames fragments of the city and the sky together. Creating a wall-less extension of the museum and academia, it forms a physical platform for varied planned programs and spontaneous unplanned programs throughout the summer. This platform, or stage, provides a public place to breakdown the zones and strata that exist in the city and aims for community-based discussions and diverse audiences.

We thank the engineer, Scott Hughes, of Robert Sillman Associates for his help in realizing this project.
