Heliofield | Michael Chaveriat, Yikyu Choe, Myung Kweon Park

Over 250 submissions have gone online for the  LAGI NYC 2012 competition to design public artwork for Freshkills Park. Some submissions go from the surreal to the amazing, with the majority of the submissions creating large scale installations to match the grand scale of the Freshkills Park. In July LAGI held a shortlisting evening in which a team of professionals got the submissions down to the top 25 submissions with the winners of the 2012 competition to be announced on October 25 in New York City. We has some of the submissions below for your review.

Draw Up A Chair | Design Competition | The Battery Conservatory


The Battery Conservancy invites students and professionals from the Americas (Canada, the United States, Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean), to design an iconic moveable outdoor seating element. The winning design will be fabricated for use at The Battery, the 25-acre park at the tip of Manhattan which annually welcomes six million visitors.

Why a Moveable Chair?
As the great urban theorist William Holly Whyte discovered: “Chairs enlarge choice: to move into the sun, out of it, to make room for groups, move away from them. If you know you can move if you want to, you feel more comfortable staying put.” The Battery’s movable chairs will delight while they invite, animating the park and making it Downtown’s central meeting place.
