New Competition Looks to Revitalize Grand Army Plaza

Late last week the Design Trust for Public Space, in partnership with the Grand Army Plaza Coalition, launched a new competition to redesign Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn, New York. The  “Reinventing Grand Army Plaza”  offers fame and fortune (well, the first prize is $5,000; second: $2,000; and third: $1,000) to the winning designer. The jury has no less than three ASLA Fellows (Michael Van Valkenburgh, Elizabeth Meyer, and Ken Smith), and Alex Washburn, ASLA, among its members.
