The Mississippi River Learning Center has been awarded an American Architecture Award from the Chicago Athenaeum. The Mississippi River Learning Center is a city-led project combining a mixed-use, river-focused campus, strengthened connections to nearby neighborhoods, a trailhead for the Sam Morgan Regional Trail, and a new, universally accessible canopy walk from the bluff to the river. Taken together, the design will create an accessible, welcoming national gateway to the Mississippi River with year-round river learning and outdoor recreation on and along Saint Paul’s stretch of river.
The project is one of three projects proposed as part of the Great River Learning Passage Masterplan. A recording of the final community presentation can be seen here.
