Stage I Winners for the National Mall Design Competition Announced

07 November, 2011

-By Jean Nayar



In its effort to revitalize and repair the National Mall, which stretches from the foot of the U.S. Capitol past the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Memorial and the Jefferson Memorial, the Trust for the National Mall launched a two-part competition to save the historic memorial for generations to come. The first—the National Mall Design Competition—is officially connected to the National Park Service. Stage I finalists (listed below) were announced and will be invited to advance to Stage II where they will compete for the chance to redesign one of three prominent National Mall locations: Union Square, the Washington Monument Grounds at Sylvan Theater, and Constitution Gardens.
 
Over 1,500 professional and aspiring architects and designers from around the world have submitted designs to the two ongoing competitions. The other competition—the National Ideas Competition for the redesign of the Washington Monument Grounds, which is sponsored in part by George Washington University—was launched prior to the NPS competition. This competition is now in its final phase and the winners of the National Ideas Competition will be presented to the public next spring.
 
The 15 professional design teams that will move on to Stage II of the National Mall Design Competition were chosen by an eight-person jury after three days of consideration. For each of the three redesign areas, six design teams were selected, with a few teams selected as finalists in two areas. Second stage designs are due December 1, and those who will be moving on to the final round will be announced on December. The NPS National Mall Design Competition will put on a public exhibition next April, and winners will be announced in early May.
