Stitch and Invigorate

What was once the center-piece of the city of Tampa, the Hillsborough River currently functions as a mere stepping stone for work-goers when entering the business district of the city. By exploring the call to return the Hillsborough River to it’s once vibrant state, we can begin to rethink not only how a city works with a river, but also uses it to create a thriving urban environment. The (re)Stitch and Invigorate proposal spotlights the Hillsborough River as the key revival agent to the city of Tampa by implementing an ecological infrastructure that promotes remediation, interaction, and occupation within the heart of the city.
