Inspired By Olmsted Contest 2017
In 1857, New York City held a public contest to design what would become Central Park. Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux entered and won the competition with their Greensward Plan, and the park that resulted has defined the city ever since.
This year, we honor that contest by holding a new park design competition: high schoolers may enter their designs for a fictional city's proposed new park!
Enter the Contest!
Your challenge: design a park that is a useful and pleasing community space, and then tell us why your design works.
