We’ve been covering the I-35 makeover for years, and it’s exciting to see it taking shape. It’s more impressive in real life than it did as a rendered concept. The polished inverted arches are huge – the size of these things needs to be seen up close.
Architect Phillip Reed of COTERA+REED ARCHITECTS explains to us the expected construction schedule. “…work will complete on the north block – roughly around Thanksgiving – and then start on the south block, which will complete around the middle of February.”
According to Reed, an artist is currently working on some programs for the lighting – which will be attached to the bottom of the stitches. “When only the north block is open, it will only have a very neutral light quality, but when both blocks are open the lighting will be programmed to change,” Reed says.
