Competition

In 2014, Van Alen Institute will celebrate its 120th anniversary, marking a major legacy of competitions and initiatives that bring innovative design ideas to civic life. Over the coming years, the Institute will refocus its attention to analyze, advise on, and activate designs, public policies, and experiences of the public realm. This year, the Institute is making its public-oriented mission central to the reinvention of its own office and event space, transforming the ground floor and lower level of its building at 30 West 22nd Street in Manhattan to house its entire organization.

Program

Finalist teams are required to include the following key elements in their design proposals for the Institute's 3,400-square-foot, ground-floor and lower-level space. Further details of the site and program elements will be shared with the selected firms. Below are summary descriptions of the program elements.
