The Corner Plaza
The Corner Plaza is Ogden’s gateway to the Nine Rails Creative District at the intersection of Washington Boulevard and 25th Street and serves as the city’s epicenter of information for arts and culture. This first wave of creative district improvements was created in partnership with Sasaki. Working with Ogden City Arts, we created a dynamic and functional design for this small space.
Integrating an existing kiosk building, the plaza will feature a major public art installation by New York-based design studio Hou de Sousa. Inspired by the refraction of light, we applied the concept to the circulation patterns into and through the site to draw people in and then disperse them through the site and into other parts of the creative district.
A social meeting space immediately in front of the existing information kiosk features a custom pin-up display wall and an inviting assembly of geometric steel benches borrowing shapes and colors from the landmark sculpture. Planters and a shady bosque of trees create a protected gathering space. Construction on this project is currently underway, anticipated to be completed in summer 2023.
