The terminus of Chattanooga’s Main Street used to end not with civic space but an empty lot. With a desire to put a better face on this central location, the city set out to transform it into an activity-rich public space, where art would be used for its visual effect and as a way to encourage physical activity. The landscape around it would do double-duty, working not only as an open space, but also as a way to better manage and bring awareness to the city’s storm water challenges.
