Description
The Belle of Louisville, the oldest operating steamboat in the United States, will be celebrating a century of service in October, 2014. To celebrate this milestone, the Centennial Festival of Riverboats will take place from October 14-19, 2014 at Louisville’s Waterfront Park in downtown Louisville, attracting an estimated 300,000 visitors from around the world.
The Festival Committee invites architects, designers & artists to participate in the Centennial Festival of Riverboats through the design of a small-scale, temporary and multipurpose pavilion to be used in series throughout the Waterfront. The pavilions will accommodate a variety of activities during the event. Actual uses may include music performance space, seating, bourbon tasting space or areas for vending and exhibitions. Because of its repetition along the event grounds, the winning pavilion will play a major role as a visual and programmatic cue for the festival.
