CityWorks is a participatory design studio convened by DownCity Design that brings community together to shape public space. This year’s CityWorks program invited local artists and makers to submit proposals for a temporary public design project along the downtown Providence Riverwalk that would explore themes of community resilience, climate change, and placebased history.
Located at a site along the eastern bank of the Providence River bordering South Water Street, Living Edge, by Adam E. Anderson of Design Under Sky, will create a tranquil gathering space while re-introducing some of the lost wildness of this site’s pre-industrial past and restoring native tree species and meadow to the water’s edge. We believe this place will invite reflection on the impacts of climate change, while sharing a vision of past and future that is restorative and hopeful.
