bjarke ingels group among finalists of van alen’s ‘reimagining brooklyn bridge’ competition

Excerpted from the story in designboom

bjarke ingels group (BIG) and arup are among the finalists of ‘reimagining brooklyn bridge’, a competition that is looking to re-think one of new york’s most recognizable landmarks. the contest, which is being run by the van alen institute, inspires participants to re-think the bridge’s walkway. six proposals by the contest’s finalists have been divided into two groups: the professional category — ages 22 and up; and the young adult category — for those 21 and under. ‘the brooklyn bridge has the potential to serve as a testing ground for designs that serve our communities in need — not just in an imagined, idealistic future — but now,’ say the competition’s organizers. ‘with these considerations at heart, the six finalist proposals are a compelling and optimistic set of ideas for responsive short-term interventions and longer-term, large-scale reconfigurations of the brooklyn bridge.’
