Grand Concourse 100

Turning 100 this year, Bronx's Grand Concourse is the subject of an international ideas competition, a project of the Bronx Museum and the Design Trust for Public Space.

Intersections: Grand Concourse Beyond 100, "solicits bold visions from architects, planners, artists, designers, students, area residents, and others, that describe how the Bronx and the Grand Concourse can evolve in coming decades to cope with pressing needs for housing, green space, and transportation."

"Winning proposals will be exhibited at The Bronx Museum of the Arts in the exhibition Intersections: Grand Concourse at 100 — Future, opening in November 2009. Honorable mentions will be displayed digitally during the exhibition and also in an online gallery on this website."
