Can a Design Contest Fix the Brooklyn Bridge? Cyclists Hope So

Excerpted from the story in The Wall Street Journal

Jessica Lax, Van Alen’s director of strategic initiatives, said she hopes design suggestions generated by the bridge’s users could inspire new ideas for the city. Designers are also encouraged to consider improvements to the roadway and nearby public spaces. The competition is divided into two categories based on age. Ms. Lax said people 21 or under could suggest ideas based on their “wildest dreams,” while older entrants would need to design something “based in some sort of reality.”
