iscrizioni entro 20.10.10 | consegna entro 28.10.10

Public international architecture ideas competition for a new Seaport Terminal in
Downtown Miami, to be located on Watson Island.

Watson Island holds a dynamic and important position in Biscayne Bay off the coast of Miami. The future of Watson Island is proving to be a nexus of infrastructure and development that is a key to the city. It is not unlikely that the seaplanes would create a cheap and flexible way to bring people to experience all that Downtown offers: the largest finance district south of New York City, two brand new state of the art museums and public park, a world renowned performing arts venue, a world championship caliber basketball team, and a major cruise ship terminal. Similar to how the train system helps link the northeastern states of the country, this project could do the same within Florida and the Caribbean. The creation of a genuine seaplane terminal would help define Downtown Miami as a major transportation hub.

The competition is open anyone anywhere in the world, including architects, landscape architects, designers, engineers, artists, and students, and excluding members of DawnTown and its Topic Committee.

Prizes will be as follows: first prize $8000; second prize $4000; third prize $2000. Honorable mentions may be selected in the jury's sole discretion.
