      Competitors are being asked to address Gateway at a regional scale, and to design a new park sited at Floyd Bennett Airfield relative to its position within the Jamaica Bay Unit of Gateway. Floyd Bennett Field is a 1,358 acre piece of land that was New York’s fist municipal airport; today, however, it suffers from a lack of identity and definition. Competitors are challenged to redefine what a “park” is today in terms of contemporary urban conditions and social/recreational needs and desires.

      Eligibility: All designers and non-designers, professionals or students worldwide.

      Prizes: 1st prize: $15,000/ 2nd prize: $10,000/ 3rd prize: $5,000/ Honorable Mention: $500.

      Jury: Ethan Carr (National Park Service Historian)/ Andrew Darrell (Director, NY Region, Environmental Defense)/ Patricia Harris (First Deputy Mayor of NY)/ Marian Heiskell (Newspaper Executive)/ Walter Hood (Landscape Architect)/ Peter Latz (Landscape architect)/ John Loring (Design Director, Tiffany &Co.) and so on.

      Address: Envisioning Gateway Design Competition, Van Alen Institute, 30 W. 22nd Street, 6th Floor, New York, NY10010, USA/ Tel: 1-212-924-7000
