Newark and Suburban Architects is sponsoring an international design competition for a Visitor’s Center for the city
Newark and Suburban Architects, in conjunction with its Emerging Professionals and Young Architects Forum programs, is sponsoring an international design competition for a Visitor’s Center for the city.
The recently announced site is at 923 Raymond Blvd. in downtown Newark, just a five-minute walk from Newark Penn Station.
“This is a conceptual design competition, but we hope it will inspire the city to actually build a center at this or some other suitable location,” said Alok K. Saksena, Associate AIA, LEED AP, the competition’s creator and coordinator. “The site will be a transition between the urban fabric of Newark and the surrounding area.”
The deadline for registrations is Aug. 31 with the deadline for submissions being Oct. 15. The awards ceremony will be held in January 2010 with the date to be announced. For more information, visit the competition’s Web site at www.visitnewarknj.org.
