Downtown Fargo: an urban-infill competition

iscrizioni entro 29.10.10 | consegna entro 24.11.10

Kilbourne Group invites to participate in "Downtown Fargo: an urban-infill competitio", an international conceptual urban ideas competition to envision an urban block in the heart of downtown Fargo, open to architects, designers, engineers, landscape architects and aspiring students.

Downtown Fargo has been steadily growing in a positive direction. Streets are becoming friendlier for pedestrians and vehicles. There is housing to accommodate the old, the young, and every age in-between. The historic and hip ambiance is attracting a variety of boutique shops, creative services, and unique restaurants.

There is, however, a void. The goal of this competition is to generate ideas, passion, interest, momentum, and dialog to fill that void. The competition sponsor, Kilbourne Group, recommends consideration be given to retail, office, housing, parking, and plaza space. Those recommendations, however, are just that, recommendations. There are increasingly more options that make Downtown Fargo a place to live, work, and play.

All designers are invited to participate in this contest to help transform a block from the U.S. Bank parking lot to a great place.

Prizes and Odds:
- First prize in the Competition is $15,000 (U.S.)
- Second prize in the Competition is $5,000 (U.S.)
- Honorable mention in the Competition is $1,000 (U.S.)
There are 1 first prize, 1 second prize and an unspecified number of honorable mentions available in the Competition.
