Temporary installations offer one of the best mediums to explore innovative and cutting edge design. That’s why NYC’s Governors Island annually hosts the City of Dreams Pavilion Design Competition, an event that challenges designers to construct a prototype that captures new and sustainable architectural trends. Just like this year’s winner, the Governor’s Cup, which is made from a sprawling canopy comprising over 25,000 recycled plastic cups, selected entries must consider the entire lifecycle of the building materials. A jury of leading architects and other industry professionals will select the winners in November 2014. The winning design will be constructed on Governors Island in summer 2015. The registration deadline is August 15, 2014.
