Prizes: Architects fees included in the project budget of $1.75 million
Type: Open competition for architects in two stages.
International architecture competition organized by NoMa Parks Foundation that seeks an artist, artist team, designer or architect to create designs for four railroad underpasses in the NoMa neighborhood of Washington, D.C.
We encourage all local, nationally, and internationally qualified artists, artist teams, designers, landscape architects and architects to apply. This design project will beautify, enliven and activate these public underpass areas. The selected designs create a network of transformed underpasses that will attract visitors and provide an engaging and positive sensory experience for all who pass through them. The final projects which will become part of the parks system will provide greater visibility of the area for those living outside of NoMa.
The total budget for this project is $1.75 million for four (4) underpass locations. The budget is inclusive of all artist/architect/designer fees, and all of their associated expenses for design, fabrication, shipping, engineering, insurance, site preparation and installation costs. Individual budgets for each location have not yet been determined.
