Graduate students from the University of Minnesota are working on redesigning the historic Nicollet Mall in downtown Minneapolis.
The group of students are working on their master's degrees at the College of Design's School of Architecture, according to The Star Tribune.
The workshop is known as the "catalyst" workshop and is run at the IDS Center's Crystal Court in Minneapolis, according to The Pioneer Press. The students will present their ideas for the mall on Friday.
The purpose of this workshop is to envision the historic mall as a gathering place for the people of Minneapolis.
