This design competition is organized by the AIA Utah Young Architects Forum and the Utah Committee on Urban Design, in conjunction with the Weber County Library, as well as many other groups invested in the vitality of the Ogden community. We are architects, urban planners, landscape architects, designers and elected representatives who have a passion for restoring the vibrancy and identity of this community.
Ogden is a unique city that balances an urban lifestyle and incredible access to a variety of outdoor recreation opportunities within minutes of its downtown core. What began as a railroad town is currently undergoing a successful endeavor to rebrand itself as the next outdoor mecca of the Intermountain West. However, there are underutilized areas of the community that have yet to be incorporated into this new vision: Lester Park is one of these spaces.
The reVIVE design competition aims to collect ideas from around the world to explore how Lester Park can build off of the momentum of the community’s vision and promote its evolution through design. The entrants’ task is to prepare comprehensive design ideas for the park that will revive one of Ogden’s public spaces and honor the community’s rich history.
