Over the past several years, the City’s Better Market Street project has gathered extensive community feedback, with a clear response that the public wants a more vibrant and positive experience on Market Street. The City has responded with a commitment to redesigned sidewalks and “Street Life Zones” that make our public space more active, vibrant and engaging. These are the zones we are asking you to reimagine and activate during the Festival.

As a placemaking project, the Festival is driven by community needs and desires – we are looking for project designs that do the same. Your project’s selection depends on your ability to listen to and respond to the community’s feedback, the inventiveness of your design, and your team’s ability to prototype and execute the proposed project. -Market Street Prototyping Festival
