WUMCRC has a design of a second cor-ten steel entry marker underway in Forest Park Southeast. The site will be on the southeast corner of Chouteau and Tower Grove. In the first design, WUMCRC incorporated the Gateway Arch in the background of the Forest Park Southeast themed buildings. The incredible asset of Forest Park Southeast is its central location to some of St. Louis’ finest institutions and attractions such as Forest Park, Missouri Botanical Garden, the Cathedral Basilica, the Midtown theater district, Saint Louis University, and of course Washington University Medical Center. Therefore the question is, for the second entry marker, what notable and neighboring sites should be incorporated into the design? Leave a comment with your thoughts.
