Gowanus by Design is proud to present Water_Works our 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?
