Moore Square competition distinguishes firm from nearly 100 applicants

Raleigh , NC – October 26, 2009 – KlingStubbins earned an honorable mention in the city of Raleigh’s first public national design competition.

The four-acre park currently hosts more than 30% of Raleigh’s public events and will draw roughly 200,000 people in 2009. But the space was not designed as a large event venue, and the increases in usage and maintenance have posed serious issues for the square.

KlingStubbins’ proposed design to renovate Moore Square sought to recognize the park as a point of convergence by extending key pathways to form active spaces within the park and fortify the linkage of venues that surround it. The openness of the park is also emphasized to allow for a wide range of activities, including farmers’ markets, festivals, and outdoor movies, providing vast, open spaces for dynamic interaction as well as more intimate spaces for rest and repose. By building upon the connective ability of the public space, the design is intended to enhance the impact of the surrounding context while provoking thoughtful future development for the city of Raleigh.
