The Louisville Knot

Louisville Metro, in coordination with the Louisville Downtown Partnership and other stakeholders, has chosen a multi-disciplinary team to design and to install public art and lighting features to enhance the Ninth Street underpass. The team is led by Interface Studio Architects (ISA), based in Philadelphia, and includes Shine Contracting, Louisville; Core Design, Louisville; Element Design, with offices in Lexington and Louisville; and LAM Partners, Cambridge, MA.
The design team’s concept, titled “The Louisville Knot,” proposes to recreate the Ninth Street underpass as an engaging and enticing public space tied together by local influences and traditions, providing a destination for exploration, commerce, and play. The Ninth Street underpass project will strengthen pedestrian connectivity underneath the Interstate 64 ramps and will transform an underutilized area into a welcoming thoroughfare with public art and dynamic lighting.
The call for proposals was open to professional artists, architects, designers, and collaborative teams, based locally and nationally. Metro is seeking a project combining art, design and infrastructure that activates and promotes public use of the space, and considers the surrounding neighborhoods, community assets, and people served by the area’s infrastructure and amenities.
The anticipated date of the project’s completion and unveiling is early 2019.
