Competition :: High Bridge Design Competition, Due January 2010

The High Bridge International Design Ideas Competition, sponsored by the NY Chapter of the AIA Emerging NY Architects Committee, is open to students and young professionals.

Currently, the historic High Bridge connects parks in Bronx and Manhattan, but it is underutilized. There is great potential for a vibrant public space that includes an art space.

*To envision the High Bridge's architectural expression and role in urban context
*To promote innovative artistic mechanism and urban ideology

Proposals should optimize site characteristics, revitalize urban connections, and advocate the idea of sustanability and multidisciplinary collaborations.

The competition will launch this September. Check back for more information or go to AIANY.
