Always believing in the importance of our local community and art, our firm entered into the design competition for the new Jacksonville School of Art, which will be the first piece in establishing the new vibrant Phoenix Arts District. The goal of our project, that we named The Mosaic Corridor or MOCO for short, will not only attract students and artists, but the community at large, sparking the evolution of the Phoenix Art District, and putting our city in the same conversation as Miami’s Wynwood Walls District or Atlanta’s Ponce City Market.
TTV is happy to announce that our team won the grand prize!!! Congrats to all the rest of the finalists and everyone involved. Look back here every couple days as we upload different renderings of the project.
