Sioux Falls, SD (2019)

In year one of Friends & Citizens, the student interns sought to fill in a missing tooth in the fabric of Downtown Sioux Falls. The Falcon Building got the studio off to a strong start.

In the summer of 2019, three SDSU design students – Tessa Klarenbeek, Alexandra Rausch, and Becca Woytassek – designed a mixed-use, multi-story project on the 300 block of North Phillips Avenue in Downtown Sioux Falls. The 300 block is uniquely situated to make a dramatic impact, linking the developing uptown of Sioux Falls with the historic downtown core. The Friends & Citizens interns investigated various uses of the site, landing on this solution with office space, apartments, parking, ground-level retail, and a rooftop bar. It’ll probably never get built, but it’d be cool if it did.
