An Urban Sustainability Design Challenge



The Ed Bacon Foundation and The Philadelphia Center for Architecture announce...

THE 4TH ANNUAL ED BACON STUDENT COMPETITION
"Brown to Green"
A design competition open to college and university level students in North America.

Pre-Registration Form due September 30, 2009.
Entries due Friday, October 30, 2009.

"Brown to Green" challenges students across North America to create a new vision for South Philadelphia's Grays Ferry Crescent. With the industrial DuPont Marshall Laboratory complex closing down and the Schuylkill River Development Corporation extending its riverfront park trail along the edge of the site, this area offers strong potential, but also great challenges. The competition gives students the opportunity to push the envelope on cutting-edge ideas for transforming brownfields of an industrial past into sustainable environs for a green future.
