Winners of The Harlem Edge / Cultivating Connections Competition
Posted: Friday, February 24, 2012 |

The Emerging New York Architects (ENYA) Committee of the AIA NY Chapter has announced the winners of its fifth biennial design ideas competition, The Harlem Edge / Cultivating Connections. One hundred seventy-eight teams and individuals registered for the competition and more than ninety-eight entries from sixteen countries were submitted for judging.

The competition explored the redevelopment of the decommissioned Department of Sanitation marine transfer station located on the Hudson River at 135th Street. The site offers the opportunity to engage the local Harlem community with the waterfront, and echoes recent efforts by NYC to reclaim the waterfront for non-industrial use, as included Department of City Planning in its Vision 2020, the Comprehensive Waterfront Action Plan for New York City.

Maybe its just me...and perhaps the project text will describe it better, but the first project is very amateur. Almost like a first year school project. Slightly disappointing, the runner ups seem much stronger.
