Van Alen Institute Announces Future Ground Competition in New Orleans

11 August, 2014

-By Erinn Waldo


The Van Alen Institute is now accepting submissions from professionals in landscape design, architecture, planning, public policy, and other related fields to develop innovative strategies for vacant land reuse in New Orleans for its Future Ground competition.

Future Ground will develop strategies to bring small projects to scale at the neighborhood and citywide level; craft policy to support design strategies; make these strategies flexible enough to be sustained into the next generation; and share resources with a network of innovators who are reusing vacant land in cities around the country.

This October, three winning teams will be awarded $15,000 to participate in a six-month research and design process. Working closely with local stakeholders and national experts, teams will forecast changes in density, demand, and climate over the next half-century in New Orleans and will tackle the social, economic, and ecological challenges underlying reuse of the most prevalent types of vacant land in the city. The project will produce implementable, replicable solutions that NORA can apply to specific sites citywide and can help catalyze change in cities around the world.

Future Ground is open to multidisciplinary teams of individuals and firms with expertise in architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, urban planning, graphic design, policy, engineering, finance, real estate, community development, and other fields relevant to the topic. Entrants are encouraged to partner with at least one individual or organization in New Orleans.

The deadline for registration and electronic submission is 11:59 p.m. EDT on September 29.
