Movement on Main Design Competition has announced the shortlist of teams for a unique and innovative street redesign will create a new public gathering place that encourages the community to engage in their neighborhood’s emergent creative life through a variety of movement and new technologies.
“Legacy cities like Syracuse are ripe for innovative approaches to urbanism and landscape. Movement on Main looks to leverage these unique opportunities to re-think civic life, and the ways in which technology and public health can have positive and catalytic effects. We’re glad to have this opportunity to work with the community and the various city agencies to imagine new possibilities for the Near Westside.” Chris Reed | Principal, Stoss Landscape Urbanism

The 2012-2013 pavilion will be the third City of Dreams Pavilion Design Competition. The City of Dreams Pavilion will be a gathering place for people to meet, learn about the arts programs on the island, be able to enjoy a performance or lecture, and experience the interaction of art and the historic context of Governors Island. Our theme for the pavilion, the City of Dreams, points toward the future. If we imagine a future New York City where anything is possible, what would it look like? In our wildest and most optimistic dreams, what is the future of the city?
