Posted: Wednesday, October 02, 2013 |

Competition winners for the redesign of 54 Jefferson were announced at SiTE:LAB in Grand Rapids, MI on Sept. 24. The open one-stage ideas competition challenged participants to create compelling proposals for the redesign of the 54 Jefferson, a former natural museum building that opened in 1940. However, deterioriation and changing museum standards caused the museum to close to the public in 1994.
