ConAgra, formerly headquartered in Omaha,
Neb. moved its headquarters to Chicago. Now the city of Omaha and ConAgra are
considering redevelopment. Instructors Emily Anderson
and Geoff Deold
's 411 studio reimagines Omaha’s ConAgra campus and Heartland of America Park as housing, mixed use, and a new anchor tenant. Students were charged with adapting existing urban building typologies to imagine new models of urbanism, adapting form to be responsive to use, context, and public or open space.
