The BIG U wins Rebuild by Design competition!

The entry for the Rebuild by Design competition by Team BIG I’ve been working on at One Architecture with Matthijs Bouw has been awarded $335M to be developed further:

The Big U is a protective system around Manhattan, driven by the needs and concerns of its communities. Stretching from West 57th street south to The Battery and up to East 42th street, the Big U protects 10 continuous miles of low-lying geography that comprise an incredibly dense, vibrant, and vulnerable urban area. The proposed system not only shields the city against floods and stormwater; it provides social and environmental benefits to the community, and an improved public realm.”

BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) with One Architecture, Starr Whitehouse, James Lima Planning + Development, Project Projects, Green Shield Ecology, AEA Consulting, Level Agency for Infrastructure, Arcadis, and the Parsons School of Constructed Environments

LOCAL FLUX Shortlisted for Europan 12

Europan 12 Assen - Our proposal LOCAL FLUX was shortlisted for the 2013 Europan 12 - Adaptable City competition. Here is the jury’s assessment of the project:   

“A charming, not unduly complicated plan that can generate a gradual transformation of the area, so that functions can be added in the course of time. There are doubts about the spatial quality. The architecture, that is so far fairly rudimentary, appears to fit in well with the site.”

                               -Jury Europan 12, location Assen, December 2013.

LOCAL FLUX was developed by Ivo de Jeu together with Barbara Iwanicka.
