Are you an interested citizen-about-town? Or studying architecture? Or just generally less-than-enchanted with the proposed demolition of Busch Stadium and/or its replacement (the vaunted Ballpark Village)? Bring your ideas even done up in some kinda diorama-like form, as long as it's no bigger than 18 by 24 inches or just your curiosity to this public forum, co-sponsored by The Commonspace and the Urban Design Forum, a midtown design firm. We're interested in dialogue and creative ideas for reusing the current Busch, projecting innovative proposals for a new stadium, and just generally elevating our town's architectural profile. If you're planning to present, you'll get five minutes. Go!
