Six Finalists Announced for Brooklyn Bridge Redesign Competition

Excerpted from the story in Brooklyn Paper

Jurors for a city competition to redesign the Brooklyn Bridge walkway have chosen six finalists, the City Council and its partner firm for the contest, the Van Alen Institute, announced Thursday.

Designs unveiled on July 9 include three schemes from architecture firms, as well as three from contestants 21-year-old or younger — all of which aim to revamp the borough’s namesake span to give more space to pedestrians and cyclists, which has become more important in the age of social distancing, according to one of the jurors.
