Newark Visitor Center Project
Emerging Professionals for AIA Newark & Suburban
31 Aug Registration Deadline
15 Oct Submission Deadline
Registration fee $150 professionals $75 students
The partnership of AIA Newark & Suburban, Emerging Professionals and the Young Architects Forum invites designers from all over the world to find innovative, visionary and compelling proposals for Newark, New Jersey’s Visitor’s Center. We at the AIA feel as though this is, indeed, a newsworthy event.
The competition and sponsorship is entirely presented and managed via the website www.visitnewarknj.org.
NVC is an international design competition focused on enhancing the progress of future endeavors in Newark, NJ while celebrating it’s fascinating past. Currently, there is no method for way-finding or a comprehensive historical center for this revitalized city continuously on the rise. All of the most significant cities in America include some sort of visitor’s hub that welcomes and funnels countless people through to their restaurants, civic marvels, and cultural/community events. This structure would surely facilitate further progress and highlight all of Newark’s hidden gems and main attractions alike. Moreover, the space shall boast an eclectic, sustainable program, becoming its very own destination spot.
Our hope is that the winning design will seriously be considered by The City of Newark, NJ!
*Companies and interested individuals are encouraged to visit our sponsorship portion of the site: http://visitnewarknj.org/Home/Sponsorshipl
After prize money is awarded, all proceeds from the competition are given to Newark based charities.
