Help Reimagine Fourth Avenue & Ninth Street

July 3rd, 2008 · No Comments

Do you have any design and planning skills? Want to try your hand at redesigning a fairly wretched Brooklyn street and intersection? Your moment has arrived. Transportation Alternatives is sponsoring a “Designing the 21st Century Street” competition for the intersection. They say “We are looking for new conceptual and physical approaches to the planning of public streets…The street will be re-imagined as a healthy, safe, and sustainable 21st Century street.” The competition is opening to both design professionals, students and members of the community in general. Designs are due by August. There will be an exhibition of winners in December selected by a jury. The top prize is $6,000, with $4,000 and $2,000 going to Second and Third Place. All the info is available on the website for the competition here. For more info email contact@21stcenturystreet.org. Everybody loves a challenge, right?
