Recently relocated to the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Terreform ONE has announced the 4th annual ONE Prize Competition. Creating and promoting ecological design technology, Terreform ONEtakes an interdisciplinary approach by running a collaborative space at the Navy Yard, leading workshops, facilitating relationships between students and professionals of all backgrounds. Since 2010, the annual competition has attracted thousands of participants from around the world.
This year’s competition is set in the context of severe climate dynamism. How can cities adapt to the future challenges of extreme weather? The ONE Prize is a call to deploy sophisticated design to alleviate storm impact through various urban interventions such as: protective green spaces, barrier shorelines, alternative housing, waterproofing technology, and public space solutions. We wish to reinvigorate infrastructure and repurpose spaces towards environmental adaptation in order to put design in the service of the community.
