The 7 member vision42design jury met on October 3 and spent the day looking at nearly 200 digital design proposals to transform New York City’s 42nd Street. They easily decided on a list of ten projects that they considered the most outstanding. In a more contested second round of discussions, the jury was able to narrow these projects to a short list of three professional projects and a student-designed project to move onto the second round of the competition.

Among the three winners, the jury selected the project by Edinburgh-based landscape architect and University of Edinburgh College of Art Landscape Architecture program director Tiago Torres Campos. His firm, CNTXT Studio, focuses on the study of architecture and its intersections with  architecture, art, design and digital media. They also selected the project of French landscape designer Mathieu Delorme whose Paris- and Nantes-based firm, ateliergeorges, is a young multi-disciplinary studio practicing urban, landscape, and architectural design. Finally, the jury chose the project of the New York–based association of Alfred Peter, Charles Bove, and Karen (Bloch) Listowsky.

The student winner was Paul Boyle from the 4th year Landscape Architecture Design Studio at the University of Western Australia under Professor Jeremy Flynn. These shortlisted winners will display their projects at 4 Times Square in an exhibition from November 14, 2014 through January 5, 2015. These projects will be available for public comment and these will be considered by the jury to select a single winner in January.

    I think that the reason why many people take part in a contest is to show their idea on a theme and then to compare it with the ideas developed by others, just to learn ..I think that you should find a way to show all the projects that you received ..I think that giving a bit of visibility, it’s a minimum reward for many people who have paid and worked hard on your “vision”

  8. Filippo says:

    …it’s very very strange thats so many team have partecipate at this contest and only few people have somethig to ask or something to say…and no one give answer…
