Van Alen Institute Launches Competition to Redesign Its Offices

23 May, 2013

-By Holly O'Dell



Van Alen Institute is transforming the ground floor and lower level of its building at West 22nd Street in Manhattan, and the nonprofit architectural organization is inviting architects to submit proposals for the redesign. The Ground/Work competition—open to designers who have been out of school 10 years or less—seeks submissions that integrate exhibition, event, administrative, and bookselling functions into a public space.  

Proposals should consider budget, landmark regulations that apply to the building’s historic site, and sustainability. A jury comprising Van Alen trustees and design professionals will select up to three finalists from the initial submissions, who will have three weeks to develop their designs. The winning team will have four months to complete design work and develop construction documents. Construction is expected to begin in the winter of 2013.

Portfolios for the first stage of competition are due at midnight on June 13, 2013. For more information, click here.
