Emerging New York Architects Committee Design Ideas Competion

By danielle


The Harlem Edge/ Cultivating Connections competition is asking for participants to design a hybridized Transformation Hub and Community facility at the decommissioned Department of Sanitation marine transfer station. The station is located in the Hudson River at 135th street. This location will allow the local Harlem community to connect better with the waterfront, which goes along with the efforts of the Department of City Planning in its Vision 2020, the Comprehensive Waterfront Action Plan.

Besides public access to the city waterfront, the design may address urban agriculture, creative programming to stimulate the local economy, and sustainability.

Registration for the competition is now open.
