Roosevelt Island Lighthouse Park Hosting Figment NYC City Of Dreams Pavilion Public Art Project And Festival Next Summer, Learn More At October 23 Community Meeting, Proposal Deadline October 30

Roosevelt Island's Lighthouse Park

will be hosting Figment NYC's City Of Dreams Pavilion on June 1-2, 2019.

According to Figment NYC:
We are excited to announce that we are now accepting entries for The City of Dreams 2019 Pavilion Design Competition!

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 competition to design and construct an architectural pavilion in Lighthouse Park on Roosevelt Island, the City of Dreams Pavilion. The 2019 pavilion will be our ninth City of Dreams Pavilion, and our first on Roosevelt Island.

The City of Dreams Pavilion will be a gathering place for people to meet, learn about the arts programs on Roosevelt Island, enjoy 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 Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) adds:
Major NYC art event to coming to Roosevelt Island next summer
