LOOKING FOR LOVE AGAIN generates excitement around downtown revitalization. An interactive installation at the street level encourages residents to share their memories of the building as well as propose ideas for what they would like to see it become. Ornamentation fixed to the building reinforces the message.
See the project description for Looking For Love Again.
