Downtown Greenway: Chroma Station
"Chroma Station" is the name we have given our design for the greenway. I did a marker rendering of our initial design ideas for the underpass space. Because we are at the intersection of major throughways we decided to focus on tracks, rails, and spanning bands as a metaphor for the construction of Greensboro. The colorful bands span the parkway and then integrate with the underpass to build its components. The trail like the bands expands and contracts to give runners, cyclists, and the like a sense of progression as they move through the greenway.
