The Transforming Seattle’s 520 Floating Bridge 2012 International Design Ideas Competition is challenging the design and art communities to envision new, innovative reuse strategies for Seattle’s 520 floating bridge, which will be decommissioned in 2014. The Competition seeks design proposals which either utilize the bridge in its current state, or take the bridge apart and reuse its pontoons. It asks the questions: What is a floating bridge when its function is no longer needed? What can designers do when faced with the design problem of reusing thirty-three floating concrete pontoons? Prizes of up to $3,000 will be awarded to the winning designs. Register by August 10, 2012, and submit your entries by August 15, 2012.
