The City of Detroit, in partnership with the Knight Foundation, seeks ambitious, multidisciplinary design teams to join residents in developing a new park in one of Detroit’s vibrant neighborhoods. Come to Detroit this summer/fall and be a part of a new landscape-based revitalization strategy!
“We know that great neighborhood parks are a critical amenity for retaining families with children in our neighborhoods,” says Maurice D. Cox, director of the City’s Planning and Development Department. “This competition seeks to explore innovative strategies that will maximize the value in the patchwork of publicly owned lands and improve the quality of life in Detroit’s neighborhoods.”
Awards:- First place design winners will receive a prize of $10,000 and have their park design implemented by the City of Detroit. Second place design teams will receive a prize of $5,000 and third place will receive a prize of $2,500. Stipends are available for travel to Detroit in August and October of 2017.
