The Gowanus Lowline

Gowanus Canal Community Development Corporation / Gowanus by Design are sponsoring a High Line-inspired contest to re-imagine the Gowanus canal.

Gowanus Crossings is an inaugural international ideas competition, which invites speculation on the value of urban development of postindustrial lands, and the possibility of dynamic, pedestrian-oriented architecture that either passively or actively engages with the canal and the surrounding watershed. This competition, the first of a series, focuses on the design of connections in and around the canal, and the residual moments around these connections.

Registration deadline is April 1 (it costs $50) and entries are due a couple weeks after. First place gets $1000. Huh.
