About the Project

Rubbertown is a neighborhood of Louisville, Kentucky, located along the Ohio River. During World War II, it became the home of many industrial plants that remained after the war and led to its name.
Re-imagining Rubbertown as a place of interest and activity by Re-energizing the streets using Low-impact developments and installation of public art is the focus of my project. There is a need for beautification of this town and engagement of the eye towards more soothing yet informative view. These will also help in the development of the community without disturbing the language and character that has developed in this town over many years.
