Closing Bell: Competition to Reinvent GAP


    The Design Trust for Public Space has recently announced an exciting competition that all Brooklynites should care about: Reinventing Grand Army Plaza. Working with theGrand Army Plaza Coalition, the Design Trust is reaching out to the global community of designers, architects, urban planners and others to generate fresh ideas for the plaza’s future. “Currently an underdeveloped public amenity, a redesign of Grand Army Plaza will invigorate surrounding communities, just as the re-conception of Manhattan’s High Line set off an explosion of activity in West Chelsea,” says the competition brief. First prize is $5,000 and submissions are being accepted until April 25; details can be found here. Oh, and if you check out the list of jurors, you might recognize someone.
