FIGMENT, one of Governors Island’s key cultural partners, has teamed with the Emerging New York Architects Committee (ENYA) of the American Institute of Architects New York Chapter (AIANY) and the Structural Engineers Association of New York (SEAoNY) to sponsor a competition to design and construct an architectural pavilion for the 2013 summer season on Governor’s Island, called the “City of Dreams Pavilion“. The City of Dreams Pavilion will be a gathering place for people to meet, learn about the arts programs on the island, enjoy a planned or impromptu performance or lecture, and experience the interaction of art and the historic context of Governors Island. Instead of a typical design competition, the City of Dreams Pavilion asks entrants to consider how they will construct this temporary structure in the most efficient and sustainable way possible. Entrants will consider the full life-cycle of building materials, from pre-construction through disassembly. Ultimately, the goal is to create a pavilion with net zero impact that serves as a prototype for a new, truly sustainable way of thinking about design and construction. The registration deadline is April 1, and the deadline for entries is May 1, 2012.

The pavilion will be installed on the South Parade Grounds on Governors Island, but is subject to change.
