Design Team

The Design Team of Tom Leader Studio and Kennedy & Violich Architecture initially created RiverFirst as their entry to the Minneapolis Riverfront Design Competition, which they won in February 2011. Beginning that year, the Design Team partnered with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board to vet the RiverFirst concept through the Minneapolis Riverfront Development Initiative. In 2012, the Design Team was awarded the commission for several RiverFirst Priority Projects, currently underway.
