St. Paul Cultural Center

Summary:

I propose making a cultural center to display two things that make St. Paul great: weather and cultural diversity.
The outside of the center will be constructed to emphasize the St. Paul weather. The fact that St. Paul experiences all four seasons is something to display and it is part of our lifestyle. During the summer, there can be open room for picnics, a garden and sculptures. In the winter, a skating rink can be out up and the sculptures would be constructed so that they look great with snow. For spring and autumn, the center can be set up for rain or to emphasize a certain color.
The inside of the center will have exhibits about the various cultures of St. Paul. The initial exhibits that the center will have are:

Midwest lifestyle & MN nice
Native American
European heritage: German, Norwegian, Irish, Swedish
Hmong
Somalian
Latino

What makes your idea different or unexpected? (4000 characters maximum or approx. 500 words)

This idea is different because it combines two things that people don't usually connect together with. Weather in St. Paul is part of our culture and sometimes can be overlooked. I also believe a creating a place that accommodates for all four season helps show how awesome the weather is in St. Paul. Lastly, the idea is different because it looks at culture individually and collectively.

How will your idea make a difference in Saint Paul? (4000 characters maximum or approx. 500 words)

The center will make a difference because it will help show that St. Paul is a collective. By going to the center, one can still learn about their own culture but also that they are part of the St. Paul culture. This makes a difference because gain an idea of how to embody their Saint Paul culture. The center will also make a difference because it gives the opportunity for creative thinking and supports the idea for so.

Sustainability

Why do you think people will recognize or remember your idea after it comes to life? How might it inspire others to do something similar in their community? (4000 characters maximum or approx. 500 words)

I think that this idea would be remembered. The first reason is that the exterior of the center which changes base on season which draw people in because they want to see the change that happens. Secondly, it connects people together and helps show this.
