Fourth Annual Ed Bacon Student Design Competition

Presenting the Fourth Annual Ed Bacon Student Design Competition
Presented by the Ed Bacon Foundation and The Center for Architecture

“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.
Competition program and information will launch online on Monday, August 31, 2009, and the competition will close on Friday, October 30, 2009.
