Emerging New York Architects (ENYA) is holding a launch party on 22 August for their  2014 Biennial Ideas Competition -  QueensWay Connection: Elevating the Public Realm. The QueensWay is an abandoned elevated railway snaking through some of the most ethnically diverse neighborhoods in central and southern Queens. To successfully transform the QueensWay into a viable green space, the design must include a strong connection between the proposed elevated park and the adjacent urban fabric below.

The QueensWay Connection: Elevating the Public Realm ideas competition seeks proposals which envision this vertical connection as a community hub which extends the street activity up to the future park.

At the launch party, ENYA will be presenting the premise of the competition. Comments will also be made by Adrian Benepe, Senior Vice President of The Trust for Public Land and representatives of Friends of the QueensWay.

 

LAUNCH PARTY AUGUST 22, 6-8PM 
The Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place NY, NY 10012

ENYA supports Friends of the Queensway and the Trust for Public Land in their efforts to transform the QueensWay into a park.

SixtyNine-Seventy, The Spaces Between | An Urban Ideas Competition


SixtyNine Seventy invites design teams from around the world to re-envision the circulation areas and passages of two blocks in Salt Lake City’s downtown. The entrants will prepare comprehensive ideas for these in-between spaces, developing them into the connective tissue linking the area’s cultural amenities.

Salt Lake City boasts a stunning natural setting, numerous cultural amenities, a unique history, a vibrant retail core, and a thriving and diverse business community. Currently, it lacks connection between many of these elements. The design competition seeks to harness ideas from around the world that will activate the spaces between with creativity deeply rooted in the city’s rich context. We hope new ideas will act as a catalyst for design-led growth downtown, helping redefine blocks sixty-nine and seventy, and the evolution of Salt Lake City as a whole. We want the fabric, textures, and essence of this city to create an energy that gives back to all who engage it.
