This park, in my hometown, holds one of the United States' most recognizable monuments: the Gateway Arch. Designed in 1947 by neo-futurist architect, Eero Saarinen, this is the tallest stainless steel monument on the planet. This park is also home to a brand new, award-winning museum, which opened its doors in 2018.
In keeping with the smooth lines and simple curves of the Arch, and the clean modern architecture of the Museum, I chose to represent the Gateway Park, stripped of its frills, carefully featuring its most resounding features (top-left to bottom-right), the Museum at the Gateway Arch, The Gateway Arch, and the Mississippi River. A top-down view allows us to map out these locations, while a cast shadow adds context to the magnitude of the park's mainstay monument.
Wavy lines represent the rushing river, along with the colors, red, yellow, and blue, paying homage to the Saint Louis City flag (designed by art historian, Theodore Sizer, in 1964).
