People’s Choice Award

Votes have been tallied and the results are in! Exhibit visitors chose Canopy, a proposal submitted 4 French designers, as the winner of the People’s Choice Award. This team was also awarded First Prize by the Reinventing Grand Army Plaza Competition Jury.

The Reinventing Grand Army Plaza Ideas Competition attracted 200 entries from 25 countries around the world. Entrants were encouraged to create bold, creative visions, and entries did not have to be realistic.

The 30 ideas presented here (and on display in the center of Grand Army Plaza, September 13 – October 13, 2008) were selected through an anonymous review by a distinguished jury of architects, planners, local civic activists, community members and artists.
