REIMAGINING THE WATERFRONT: Design-Ideas Competition
CIVITAS is calling architects, landscape architects, urban planners, students and artists to generate dramatic and original concepts for the east side’s waterfront park, jump-starting a process that aspires to the transformation of the entire East River pedestrian experience.
Through the design-ideas competition, we hope to establish greater equality with other New York City waterfront parks by developing a spatially rich and varied scheme that will enhance the east river waterfront’s narrow confines with recognition of its total urban context.
A well-integrated mosaic of new landscape, additional structure and alluring sculpture and lighting will help this prominent waterfront site achieve its potential as a vital and stimulating outdoor location, a favorite refuge for residents of all ages and a destination for tourists and visitors from all over the world.
Registration will open on September 15, 2011 and the deadline for submissions is January 15, 2012
FIRST – $5,000
SECOND – $3,000
THIRD – $2,000
HONORABLE MENTIONS (5) – $100 each
