The International Design Competition for Newark Visitors Center is being held by AIA Newark, Suburban Emerging Professionals and the Young Architects Forum.
Competitors are asked to address the site on a variety of issues. Designers are asked to develop a strategy for receiving patrons and educating, entertaining, and directing them. Proposals should link the diverse historic and urban opportunities located within the area. Address the historical, present day, and future value of this new structure in Newark.
