This past December an international competition was launched to redesign the 91 acre grounds for the Gateway Arch. Completed in 1965, this is the first design competition for the national memorial to Thomas Jefferson’s Louisiana Purchase and the American Westward expansion since 1947, when the original concept for the Arch was purposed.

The competition, sponsored by the CityArchRiver 2015 Foundation, started with 49 applicants and was narrowed down to 5 finalists. The finalist teams are Behnisch Team led by Behnisch Architekten, Stuttgart, Germany and Los Angeles; PWP Landscape Architecture, Foster Plus Partners, Civitas, Berkeley, California; MVVA Team led by Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, New York City; SOM, Hargreaves, BIG, Chicago; and Weiss/Manfredi, Architecture/Site Design/Urbanism, New York.  Their designs for the Gateway Arch International Design Competition were revealed on Monday and will on display at the Arch Lobby until September 24th, when the winner will be announced. The project is scheduled to be completed October 28, 2015 on the 50th anniversary of the completion of the Arch. The Park Service estimates that the cost of the project will be around $305 million.
