But of course. The CityArchRiver 2015 Foundation
competition has announced a briefing for Joe Public on the nine designs that are in the running to remake the Arch grounds, and who else but a sports
commentator will moderate it: Joe Buck
Sure, Buck is a professional communicator. And he'll probably be good at keeping the architects on task before the all-ears public. Not sure that he'll draw average Joes into the process, but perhaps that's not the point.
The "Meet the Design Teams" event is scheduled for April 28
at 7 p.m. at the Roberts Orpheum Theater downtown.
All nine projects currently in the running will be presented, and according to the announcement, the public will apparently get to see four or five of the teams foul out.
In the meantime, citizens with their own ideas are free to submit them -- including video and photos -- to the CityArchRiver "community connection
" portal and/or through the group's Facebook or Twitter pages.
