Making connections through Architecture: Revitalizing a blighted neighborhood through the introduction of a civic open space created within an urban community of artist live work studios, museum, shopping and performance spaces acting as a connector between the existing fiber of the South Main Street and the adjoining parts of the South Main Arts District of Memphis, TN. The focus of this thesis is to establish connections through architecture by introducing an element which could act as a connector between the existing scenario of the South Main Street and the future development of the South Main Arts District. Considering the artistic and historic background of the City of Memphis, the study evolves along the concept of rejuvenating a part of the city through an investigation and rethinking of comprehensive architectural and urban design issues related to its existing urban fabric.
