The "Changing Views" exhibit is on display at the McDonough Museum in Youngstown.

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – College architecture students showed off their visions of a redesigned downtown Youngstown at the McDonough Museum.

The “Changing Views” exhibit debuted to the public Friday evening.

The projects were created by students from four universities, including Youngstown State and Kent State.

Teams were assigned areas at cross streets in downtown Youngstown. Then they designed buildings and created everything that goes into building design, including parking and green space.

The museum wants feedback from the community about their ideas.

“We’d really like people who come to see the show to respond to projects they see here on the walls, on the panels, in videos, and let us know what they think of these ideas,” said Director Leslie Brother.

The museum has forms for people to fill out and a recording station for feedback.

The designs will be on display at the museum through July 22.
