A series of creative experiments, installations, and activations — big and small — conceived of and managed by Of Place to set the tone for the revitalization of Arlington, Virginia.
In the winter of 2017, Of Place was hired by JBG Smith to transform the urban landscape of Crystal City in Arlington, Virginia. Crystal City, with its brutalist concrete office parks and underground mall, had the reputation of being a place without a soul. Of Place developed and executed a five-month strategy involving 15 consultants and artists that consisted of efforts such as:
Adrienne Shishko, Britten Studios, Dominique Fierro, EPI, Gensler, Groundswell Design Group, Havit, HITT, Land Design, Landscape Management Group, Maggie O’Neill, No King’s Collective, RSM, Swatchroom, Tim Doud, Twigz Studios and Washington Project for the Arts
