Designbox Gets Creative with Dirt at Dorothea Dix

Upon hearing that the Dix property was to receive 150,000 tons of dirt from the new convention center project in downtown Raleigh, Aly Khalifa, Professor Will Hooker and Councilman Thomas Crowder decided to hold a design charrette to find a creative way to turn this dumping into a unique city feature. Khalifa will lead the creative session with Designbox members facilitating 40 members of the community at the Urban Design Center. Results will be presented to city planning staff with groundbreaking scheduled for this summer. See the results at Designbox or the Convention Center.
