“Gowanus Crossings is an international ideas competition, which invites speculation on the value of urban development of postindustrial lands, and the possibility of dynamic, pedestrian-oriented architecture that either passively or actively engages with the canal and the surrounding watershed. This competition focuses on the design of connections in and around the canal, and the residual moments around these connections. These may relate to the east west crossings and/or the north south corridor that defines the Canal and upland.“
