15.03.2017 - Shore to Core waterfront design competition
West Palm Beach, USA
Van Alen Institute, New York, USA
West Palm Beach Community Redevelopment Agency, West Palm Beach, USA
Shore to Core will select two teams to reimagine how we grow and connect our downtowns and waterfronts using West Palm Beach as a model. The competition looks for forward-looking and innovative ideas that are vibrant and adaptive to changing demographics and economies, changes in sea level, and that can facilitate improved civic wellbeing.
Proposals should offer a flexible master-plan framework that can change over time. The competition asks: How can we reimagine our downtowns to make them more engaging and vibrant? How can cities collect information that informs future adaptation and growth? How can we facilitate social interaction among diverse groups? How can the built environment improve residents’ physical health, mental health, and social capital? Proposals should test new models to support the questions above. Finalist teams will work with partners to further develop these ideas. A winner will be selected to implement the first piece of this project, which will include the redesign of an underutilized garage that should act as a social condenser and an icon for the quickly evolving city.
