With desigNYC, Robin Key Landscape Architects created community green spaces for Serviam Gardens, an affordable housing complex for seniors in the Bronx.

DesigNYC continues on its mission to match civic-minded designers with nonprofit organizations in New York City.  For its third cycle of projects in 2012, desigNYC will focus on the theme of Recharging Communities. Nonprofit organizations and pro bono design teams are invited to submit applications by THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2011 at 5 pm EST via desigNYC’s website.

This round aims to identify and support projects intended to strengthen communities, promote social interaction, and improve neighborhood environments through better housing and public space as well as social media and knowledge-based networks. DesigNYC is seeking a range of design disciplines and projects types that may address these goals.

The 2012 selection jury will be announced in the coming weeks, and design firms, nonprofit organizations, and partnered teams will be announced by the end of the year, in order to begin work in January 2012. Each project-designer team is assigned a desigNYC mentor who helps facilitate collaboration and link the team back to the desigNYC support network.

For applications, more information, to see previous projects, and to learn how to get involved, visit desigNYC’s website.
