Van Alen Institute Launches Future Ground Competition in New Orleans
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: Van Alen Institute

We're thrilled to announce the launch of a new international competition, Future Ground, inviting multidisciplinary teams to generate flexible design and policy strategies to reuse vacant land in New Orleans. The competition is supported by the New Orleans Redevelopment Authority (NORA), which owns over 2,000 vacant lots and has become a regional and national leader in reuse of vacant lots for community resilience and development.

Approximately 30,000 empty lots and abandoned structures dot the landscape of New Orleans today, many of them a legacy of Hurricane Katrina. As the City nears the 10-year anniversary of the storm, Future Ground will generate strategies to forecast and accommodate changes in density, demand, climate and landscape in New Orleans over the next half-century, transforming these abandoned landscapes into resources for the near-term and future city.

In October 2014, three teams will be awarded $15,000 to participate in a six-month research and design process. Teams will be selected from an international open Request for Qualifications process. Applications are due by September 29, 2014, and will be evaluated by a jury of national leaders in design and policy.

Future Ground is the first of several competitions to be launched as an integral part of Van Alen'sElsewhere: Escape and the Urban Landscape, a multi-year initiative exploring how both the form and organization of the built environment influence our need for escape.
