The vision42design competition to rethink and redesign the entire length of New York City’s 42nd Street was launched last April by AN and The Institute for Rational Urban Mobility. Entrants in the competition have the opportunity to not only rethink this important street but transform Manhattan at its core and become a model for major urban thoroughfares worldwide.
The competition has generated wide interest from architects, urban designers, transportation planners, landscape architects, and other professionals and academic design studios from around the world. The date for submission of digital design materials for the competition is midnight EST on October 1, 2014, but the digital registration deadline has been extended to September 15 at midnight. In order to register, go to the competition website and then click “Registration.” We will announce a short list of phase one winners on October 6, 2014.
