Open International Design Competition for Building a Vibrant Center for Design, Science and Education at the Brooklyn Navy Yard

Relocated to the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Terreform ONE has announced the 5th annual ONE Prize Competition. Since 2010, the annual competition has attracted thousands of participants from around the world.
This year’s competition is set in the context of the renovation of the Brooklyn Navy Yard into a green technology and sustainable manufacturing complex. ONE Prize is a call to build a Smart Dock, where ONE Lab, a new school for design and science, will establish a collaborative teaching facility and public outreach center for socio-ecological design. This Lab Smart Dock will include spaces for lectures, events, and design studios for approximately thirty graduate level students. It will function both as a visual reference and spatial matrix for ONE Lab, and as an unique interdisciplinary research laboratory for industrial design, synthetic biology, landscape ecology, art, architecture, and master planning.
The ONE Prize seeks architects, landscape architects, urban designers, planners, engineers, scientists, artists, students and individuals of all backgrounds to:
- Design ONE Lab Smart Dock within the existing matrix of the Building 128, a former shipbuilding factory;
- Create a venue that symbolizes the ideas and values of ONE Lab;
- Build a Smart Dock that will serve as a launching point for the redevelopment of industrial and waterfront sites in New York and other cities worldwide;
- Imagine an educational facility that can address the future of learning environments and inflect their design, in times of climate changes.
Since 2010, One Prize has awarded over $40,000 in prize money.
1st place     US $5000 + winning entry to be developed for construction.
2nd place    US $2000
3rd place     US $1000

The early registration period of the ONE Prize 2014 competition has been extended for another month. Until July, 31st, the entry fee will still be only $100.

So HURRY UP and sign on to develop your vision for ONE Lab, a brand new, independent design school at the heart of the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
ONE Lab will be a new kind of learning space, nestled within an awesome new innovation facility. You can help give it both physical and conceptual form. You can help give it life.

Imagine arriving by bike, bus or even boat, to a place for thinking, creating, and making. You can attend lectures and discussions in a space furnished with interactive equipment, sit with your professor in the lounge area, be hooked up by live feed in the library. From the bar, where you will have thrilling discussions while tasting the latest food experiment, to a display area created to showcase work of young innovators, ONE Lab will be organized around collaborative work, interaction, and changing needs. The ONE Lab “Smart Dock” will enable you to have access to state of the art facilities: 3D printers, laser cutters, laboratories, monitors, facilities for growing and preparing food, spaces for events, etc.

ONE Lab will be located within the Brooklyn Navy Yard and be part of its renaissance and transformation into a green manufacturing and high-technology complex. In this dynamic and rich environment, at the core of the DIY revolution, ONE Lab will foster the meeting of different people, ideas, and know-how.

ONE Prize welcome a range of proposals, from the most practical to the most visionary, so imagine how your ideal for a design and science school for the future might be embodied in the ONE Lab “Smart Dock”.

So… don’t waste time. Register this month.
