Rondo Commemorative Plaza
Marvin Roger Anderson,
and the Rondo Commemorative Plaza Design team
Located in the Rondo Neighborhood, approximately four blocks from the Victoria Station on the Green Line on Old Rondo Avenue, the completed project will be a place to remember the history of this predominately African American Community that was once a thriving neighborhood prior to the construction of Interstate 94.
To serve its commemorative purpose, RAI believes that the completed project should incorporate interactive historical displays that provide visual, written and oral information; signs, images, music, and art representative of the old Rondo community before the construction of Interstate 94.
The final design will also serve as a social center for gatherings to celebrate and learn about Rondo from older citizens who grew up there through community dialogues and live musical presentations. This will require benches, a small stage or raised platform, lighting and a sound system. The plaza will incorporate the most stunning environmental designs and landscaping – grass, flowers, shrubbery and pathways.
