9781616891152: New Public Works: Architecture, Planning, and Politics (New City Books)

Between 1999 and 2002 the National Endowment for the Arts's New Public Works program sponsored design competitions in cities across the United States. The forward-thinking designs that emerged have influenced the physical form of major public works projects nationwide. New Public Works presents a history of the program, along with interviews with participants. Special attention is paid to the key role played by private, municipal, and other public funding sources. Case studies of three built projects by Allied Works Architecture, Koning Eizenberg, and Weiss/Manfredi Architecture describe the path of each from competition through construction.

Book Description PRINCETON ARCHITECTURAL PRESS, United States, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Between 1999 and 2002, New Public Works, an initiative of the design program of the National Endowment for the Arts, sponsored over thirty national design competitions. Beyond yielding innovative new work in the public realm, it was meant to be broadly didactic, introducing cities across America to new design work. It also gave access to developing capacity within a tier of designers, many who had not previously worked at this scale or in the public sector. Even those projects which were not built provide progressive models for public practice and are instructive to students and other professionals. The book will explore the complex set of alignments which contributes to the success of public work, exploring the impact of private, municipal and public courses of support and the necessary mix to get this type of work done. With a focus on three built projects and through a series of interviews with designers, clients, end users and sponsors, the text will describe the arc of each from the competition through completion.
