In early September, the three Ground/Work finalist teams revealed their visions for our new street-level space. Van Alen Institute is pleased to present their design work, and to announce that Collective-LOK has been selected as the competition winner! See below for more information on the three finalist proposals and the winning design.
Collective–LOK is a team formed by Jon Lott (PARA-Project), William O’Brien Jr. (WOJR), and Michael Kubo (over,under).
Our approach is shaped by an architectural mindset, but draws on a broad range of interests — historical, conceptual, curatorial, and cross-disciplinary — in order to shape discourse on design in the public realm.
EFGH is a New York-based architectural design practice founded in 2007 by principals Hayley Eber and Frank Gesualdi. The studio actively engages projects across scales: from the projective design of large urban sites to innovation at the scale of custom furniture, and everything in between. We explore design as an extensive network of interrelated and often competing issues, interrogating them along the way.
Of Possible Architectures
Of Possible Architectures (OPA) is a creative practice working across spheres of architecture, social sculpture, large scale public art, and urbanism. OPA is committed to architecture as an act of cultural production and focuses on radically innovative, often self-initiated, cultural projects. What we do is based on optimistic speculations for how people and the built environment affect one another.
