From the competition website:
This international ideas competition solicits bold visions that describe how the Bronx and the Grand Concourse can evolve in coming decades to cope with pressing needs for housing, green space, and transportation. Now is the time to make sure that the Bronx's omnipresent dynamism, occasional radicalism and enduring creativity find expression in the public realm.
Winning proposals will be exhibited at The Bronx Museum of the Arts starting in November 2009. A companion exhibition will take place in Manhattan at the Center for Architecture during November. Honorable mentions will be on display at the exhibition and on this website.
7 finalists will be awarded a $1,000 cash stipend to further develop their proposal for inclusion in the exhibition Intersections: Grand Concourse at 100 -- Future at The Bronx Museum of the Arts, opening Nov. 1, 2009. A first prize of $5,000 will be awarded to one of the seven finalists once the exhibit is on view.
Honorable Mentions will be awarded to up to 50 submissions, and will be displayed digitally during the exhibit in the Museum's North Wing Lobby and also displayed in an online gallery on this website.
