The American Institute of Architects - NY Chapter (AIA NY) announced the winners of its fifth biennial design ideas competition—Harlem Edge - Cultivating Connections—back in February, and the winners and honorable mentions are now on display at the institute's Center for Architecture on Laguardia Place through October. The competition called for a hypothetical redesign of the decommissioned waste transfer facility on the Hudson River at 135th Street, requiring the inclusion of a multi-modal transportation hub to increase connection between West Harlem and the waterfront, and a component to promote health through nutrition. Pictured is Ting Chin and Yan Wang of Linearscape Architects, who were recognized last night for their first prize-winning entry Sym'bio'pia. If you can't make it to Laguardia Place, The Harlem Edge site features all of the entrants' and winners' projects.
