This architectural competition is being promoted by ARQUITECTUM to evaluate proposals for the construction of a new monument to the urban, cosmopolitan and "universal" character of New York City. To that end, this project, a 100 meter tall tower, will house a museum which will display the belongings, memories and photos of the new generation of immigrants which - from the 1960s onwards - headed for a city they saw as the paradigm of the American Dream. This museum tower - to be located at the tip of the island on a pier over Battery Park - will not only become an architectural landmark, but also serve as a space dedicated to the celebration of the new urban dynamic of global multiculturalism and interracial relations in the 21st century.
