International architecture competition Robson Redux to select one designer or team to design, build and install a temporary public space installation that will transform the iconic 800 block of Robson St. in downtown Vancouver into a pedestrian plaza for the duration of summer 2014.
The intervention will provide the public with a high quality and interesting outdoor pedestrian plaza experience.
With the aim of igniting people’s imagination and interest in great public spaces, the competition is built on the theme of connection: people’s connection to one another and people’s connection to the space.
This is an open competition; anyone may enter. However, the competition criteria and submission requirements lend themselves to expertise in architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, industrial design and other related fields. The competition encourages design teams with diverse skill sets to submit joint entries.
