Design Challenge:

The aim of this international competition is to design a new urban area, on the site of a recently torn down and abandoned Chrysler Engine Plant, that will act as a catalyst in the heart of Kenosha, WI. The architecture and design of this new area should reflect contemporary design tendencies. The proposal must not only attend to the specific site but the design should also take into consideration the surrounding urban fabric and the impact your new design will have on on the sites surrounding and the entire Kenosha area as a whole.

There is no specific program or design criteria for the competition. However, even though the use is open ended, all designs should address 4 aspects (History of the Site and City, The Sites Surrounding Urban Fabric, Industries of Kenosha, and Transportation Options)
