You Can Design Next Year’s City of Dreams Pavilion on Governors Island

July 29, 2014

Calling all designers and architects! The AIANY Emerging New York Architects Committee (ENYA) is now accepting entries for The City of Dreams 2015 Pavilion Design Competition.

This year, FIGMENT has teamed up with ENYA and SEAofNY to host a contest that invites creatives to design and construct an architectural pavilion for next year’s City of Dreams. The winning designer will be the 5th to create a project for annual event, following in the footsteps of other notables such as StudioKCA with their 2013 work, ‘Head in the Clouds’, which also won a Best of Year award from Interior Design Magazine in the installation category. Don’t miss out on a chance to create an unforgettable space for this incredible playground of art and culture.

The City of Dream Pavilion competition asks entrants to design a temporary structure that can not only hold 50+ people and provide shade and rain cover, but one that employs materials in an efficient and sustainable way. Designers are also encouraged to use “cradle to cradle” products, secure sponsorships with environmental or socially conscious groups, and/or re-use waste from construction sites—all in all, the materials used and the construction of the pavilion should have as little impact as possible on the environment throughout the project’s lifecycle.

Entries from both individuals and teams are welcome, as are submissions from non-architects of any age and experience level (although if you design it, you better know how to build it!). The competition registration deadline is August 15, 2014, and proposals are due by 11:59pm ET on September 2, 2014. A jury will meet and we will notify all finalists by September 30, 2014.

The complete entry details can be found here.
