Gowanus by Design is proud to present Water_Worksthe second annual design and planning competition. This competition focuses on the post-industrial development of a contaminated site in the canal watershed that offers the challenge of rethinking how a new community resource can become an agent for remediation within a diverse urban context. The theme of this competition is framed in the following question:

Can a new community center and remediation facility on a heavily contaminated State Superfund site be designed to strengthen the urban infrastructure and educate the community about environmental challenges facing the area?

The competition site in Brooklyn is comprised of three areas: an entire city block, the north end of the Gowanus Canal, and two public streets.

This competition is a digital submission.
