About

FIGMENT has teamed with the Emerging New York Architects Committee (ENYA) of the American Institute of Architects NY Chapter (AIANY) and the Structural Engineers Association of New York (SEAoNY) to host a 9th City of Dreams Pavilion, architecture competition to design and construct an architectural pavilion in Lighthouse Park on Roosevelt Island, the City of Dreams Pavilion.

The City of Dreams Pavilion will be a gathering place for people to meet, learn about the arts programs on Roosevelt Island, take in a performance or lecture, and enjoy this temporary structure. Our theme for the pavilion, the City of Dreams, points toward the future. If we imagine a future New York City where anything is possible, what would it look like? In our wildest and most optimistic dreams, what is the future of the city?

The current state of the world is such that both economic and natural resources are limited and unequally distributed. A new way of thinking is necessary to solve these problems. Inevitably, the result will be a change in the basic practices that have driven the world to its current state. One place to start to activate and energize these changes is within the architecture and design community, where the movement toward sustainable design has only scratched the surface of what is possible and necessary.

The 2019 City of Dreams Pavilion Design Competition will be a two-stage process, in which a jury of leading architects and other industry professionals will review initial submissions and select several finalists. These finalists will receive comments and will have the opportunity to revise their proposals. The jury will meet again and select the competition winner in January 2019.


The City of Dreams Pavilion asks entrants to consider how they will construct this temporary structure in the most efficient and sustainable way possible. Entrants should consider the entire lifecycle of building materials in their submission. Whether they do this by identifying companies that produce “cradle-to-cradle” products, garnering sponsorships from environmental or socially conscious groups, or re-using waste from construction sites, the materials and the installation process should have as little impact as possible on the environment.

Entrants should submit how they plan to source materials, how their structures will be transported to the site, how they will eliminate waste during installation, and how they plan to disassemble and reuse the materials after the Roosevelt Island site closes for the season. In other words, entrants are being asked to consider using “borrowed” materials—from existing construction sites and from places where the materials can be returned after the structure is disassembled.

In the end, the goal is to create a pavilion that has a net zero impact and that serves as a prototype for a new, truly sustainable way of thinking about design and construction.

Essential requirements of the proposal are as follows:

• Create a gathering place for 50 or more people, providing shade and rain cover
• Provide an integrated performance area/stage for small dance performances, music ensembles, and/or spoken word productions
• Consider the full lifecycle of the materials used—where they come from and where they will go after de-installation
• Provide for the design and installation of the project, including sourcing all materials
• The structure must be freestanding, and cannot penetrate the ground to a depth greater than 6”
• The design will require approval from a number of public agencies prior to installation, which may include the Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation (RIOC), the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC), and the NYC Department of Buildings
• Include a budget that anticipates all costs of fabrication, transportation, installation, and de-installation

Optional considerations:

• How will the pavilion support educating the public about arts programs on Roosevelt Island?
• How will the pavilion support informal performances or lectures?
• What other kinds of activities could take place in the pavilion?

Submission requirments:

• Entries should contain three (3) 11”x 17” pages in landscape format saved as a single PDF.
• Please include graphics that show how your project will look, and how it will be constructed. Please feel free to use any graphic style that is comfortable for you: hand-drawn, Sketchup, Illustrator, CAD are all perfectly acceptable. The most important thing is clarity. Please make sure these pages are labeled with the name of your proposed design.
• Please detail what materials you plan to use for the project, bearing in mind the full lifecycle of the materials used: Where do they come from? Where do they go after the project is de-installed?
• Please include a budget that shows your budget for materials and expenses. Designers will be reimbursed for materials purchased up to a certain amount yet to be determined, pending fundraising for this project.
• Proposals should be submitted via email to pavilion@figmentproject.org.

Selection criteria that the jury will consider:

Proposal feasibility and constructability
Lifecycle considerations and overall environmental impact
Adherence to theme
Design impact
Innovative use of materials
Visitor safety: the design should not give visitors the opportunity to climb or hang on the pavilion, or do anything that would be a risk to their safety
