STEELSTACKS ARTS & CULTURAL CAMPUS Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence Gold Medal
Global Award of Excellence, Urban Land Institute
ULI Philadelphia Willard G. Rouse III Award for Excellence
The creation of the SteelStacks Arts and Cultural Campus is a key element in a strategy to redevelop all abandoned facilities and land within a 126-acre Bethlehem Works parcel at the western end of a former 1,800-acre Bethlehem Steel Corporation steel-production plant. The development of the SteelStacks Arts and Cultural Campus has contributed to the sustainability of the arts, entertainment, and cultural organizations that has relocated to the site. The master plan developed designs for three projects that emerged as the plan evolved, including 1) the landscape architecture and place-making plans for the overall site; 2) the Levitt Pavilion, including realignment of the street to allow for a larger seating area; and 3) the Hoover-Mason Trestle.
