VA BEACH NIGHTLIFE AXIS

VA BEACH NIGHTLIFE AXIS

VIRGINIA BEACH NIGHTLIFE AXIS, completed with Virginia Beach native Katie Mearns.  This unsolicited proposal from 2006, years before hurricanes prompted widespread concern, addresses the vulnerability of Virginia Beach culture to climate-change driven floods.  Noting the clustering of existing nightlife locations along the beach waterfront, the plan aims to expand entertainment options along a densifying spine perpendicular to Pacific Avenue.  In order to quickly achieve this shift, a New Media Hip Hop festival is proposed, drawing from the potential overlapping audiences of both the Miami Winter Music Conference and the Hip Hop Theater Festival of Washington DC.
