Ideas Competition Events
June 25, 2016
Earlier this year, the NYS Pavilion Ideas Competition was launched by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the People for Pavilion to engage the public in the next life of Philip Johnson’s iconic, yet long-neglected structures from the 1964 World’s Fair. The competition is open to anyone with an idea for the Pavilion’s reuse and requires only a single 11 x17 sheet describing the concept. Two partner organizations are hosting events this weekend to spread the word and encourage interested individuals to submit their ideas.
Saturday June 25 – Hibridos Collective will host the “People’s Tent of Tomorrow,” a pop-up tent where passersby can learn about the history of the site and share their ideas for the future.
Sunday June 26 – RPGA Studio will help the public reimagine the Pavilion through virtual reality and 3D printing at the Only in Queens Summer Festival
