Post Apocalyptic Central Park

An international design competition was launched last April LA+Journal that charged artists, architects, planners, and designers with reimagining and redesigning New York’s Central Park for the 21st century.  There were 382 entrants from 30 different countries, with a total of 193 designs.  In the end it was five entries submitted from Australia, China, the United Kingdom, and the United States that won. Each of the winners will receive a $4,000 cash prize and publication in LA+Journal’s LA+ICONOCLAST issue. The ICONOCLAST Design Competition, as it was called, was inspired by a hypothetical eco-terrorist attack carried out in protest to the loss of the world’s forests. Through this scenario, the design competition provokes artists to “tackle big questions about how we represent and manifest ideals of public health, democracy, and nature.”  You can view the extraordinary winners here.
