ONE PRIZE 2012: FROM BLIGHT TO MIGHT - Finalists Announced
Posted: Monday, August 06, 2012 |

Terreform ONE has announced twenty finalists of its open international design competition, ONE PRIZE 2012: FROM BLIGHT TO MIGHT. The competition drew 115 teams and 655 team members from more than 20 countries and five continents. Many questioned the American Dream and offered new 21st century possibilities. Several projects called for a rethinking of the boundary between the derelict area and its adjacent urban fabric.

In the context of a struggling US economy and the tension of stagnant unemployment, ONE PRIZE 2012 called for ideas that simultaneously address social, ecological, and economic issues through collaborative action and innovative design. Through this lens, the objective was to reinvigorate deindustrialized, derelict urban areas and repurpose space for economic growth and employment opportunity. To move towards a sustainable and humane global community, innovators from all disciplines have to rethink the way we conceptualize economic and ecological sustainability.

The Jury, chaired by the Speaker of the New York City Council Christine C. Quinn will meet in late September to select the final winners. The panel of jurors is further comprised of:

  • Carlo Aiello, Editor-in-Chief, eVolo Magazine
  • Julie Bargmann, Founding Principal, D.I.R.T. Studio
  • David Belt, Founder and Executive Director, Macro Sea
  • Miquela Craytor, Director for Industrial Initiatives, NYCEDC
  • Dan D'Oca, Partner, Interboro Partners
  • Evan Douglis, Dean, RPI School of Architecture
