Site: Richmond’s Mayo Island and 14th Street Bridge, which serve as both significant transitions and destinations.

Design Challenge:

Using Richmond’s recent win to host the 2015 Road World Championship cycling races, competition entrants are asked to propose economically, culturally and environmentally responsible tourism and recreation-based solutions for Mayo Island that critically examine the lasting impact of the 2015 Road World Championships and the role Mayo Island plays in Richmond’s past, present and future.
