ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), April 22, 2013 - The St. Louis Public Library will present, Cass Gilbert's Vision and Central Library Today, a discussion about the restoration of Central Library in relation to its original architect, Cass Gilbert, and his design.
The event will be held in the Central Library Auditorium, 1301 Olive Street, on May 8 from 6:30-8 p.m. It is FREE and open to the public. Seating is on a first come, first served basis.
Cass Gilbert authority Sharon Irish leads a discussion with George Nikolajevich, principal architect on the Central Library restoration project, and Waller McGuire, Executive Director of the St. Louis Public Library. McGuire has overseen the restoration of Central Library.
The trio discusses Gilbert's early 20th-century vision for the Library as well as how the restoration and renewal of Central Library has maintained the integrity of the great architect's original design while bringing his masterpiece up to standards befitting a 21st-century cultural treasure.
Irish is an expert on the life and work of Cass Gilbert as well as an art and architectural historian interested in ways to activate history and the arts in the present day, for a variety of people.
Nikolajevich, the Design Principal of Cannon Design, demonstrates a humanist's touch with simple materials. His work in education and healthcare combines a Midwestern sensibility with a flair for sophisticated design. He has two decades of award-winning projects under his belt.

ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), April 22, 2013 - The Saint Louis Zoo will host a public open house on an expansion framework plan for the Zoo's 13.5-acre Forest Park Hospital site Wednesday, May 1 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Zoo's The Living World at its North Entrance on Government Drive in Forest Park.
The Zoo design team will seek public feedback on the framework plan, which will be formally presented at 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. during the open house. Purchased Oct. 5, 2012, this site will both expand the Zoo's footprint and provide opportunity for the Zoo to grow and better serve the community and the preservation of wildlife.
Reflecting months of research, analysis, planning and stakeholder engagement, the framework plan broadly outlines goals and guidelines for future development; its completion will be the launching point for the Zoo's strategic and master planning initiatives.
By early summer of 2013, the Zoo expects to publish its final framework plan report, including documented public input and specifics on any structures targeted for removal.
The planning effort began with a selection of a design team, led by landscape architectural firm SWT Design. As a first step in developing the project, the Zoo and this team hosted an open house on Dec. 11, 2012, to present information about the planning process and engage the public in offering initial suggestions about how the new site could be transformed.
The Zoo design team includes, in addition to SWT Design, a second St. Louis-based company-the public engagement firm, Vector Communications. SWT Design has been working with Chicago-based architect Edward Uhlir, owner of Uhlir Consulting, LLC, to develop the visioning plan. Uhlir was a major force in creating the acclaimed Millennium Park in Chicago.
