One of New York City’s most iconic buildings is poised for a dramatic comeback—and it needs your help. The National Trust for Historic Preservation, People for the Pavilion, and Queens Borough President Melinda Katz have launched the New York State Pavilion Ideas Competition, an open call for proposals to reinvent the Philip Johnson-designed masterpiece. While the New York State Pavilion’s hey-day was in the 1960s during the World’s Fair, the unique structure is now significantly deteriorated after decades of disuse. In hopes of breathing new life back into the iconic structure, the competition invites anyone over the age of 13 to take an “anything goes” approach at redesigning the architectural icon for the 21st century. A cash prize pool of $5,000 will be distributed among four winners. There is no fee to participate. The submission deadline is Friday, July 1, 2016.
