Press Release: One Prize: Water as the 6th Borough Semifinalists

July 11, 2011

Terreform ONE is very pleased to announce the semifinalists of:
Water as the 6th Borough: Open International Design Competition to Envision the Sixth Borough of
New York City 

The competition called for ideas for the NYC Blue Network and E3NYC, The World Largest Clean Tech Expo. The propositions ranged from: expanding waterborne transportation, linking the five boroughs with transit
hubs, incorporating ferries, water taxis, bike shares, electric car-shares, and electric shuttle buses, as well as
providing in-water recreation, educational events, cultural activities, pavilion halls, and climate resilience.

The competition drew 256 people in 86 teams from 18 countries and four continents. It became a big
challenge to narrow them down to 30 SEMIFINALISTS. (click here to see the entries)

From here, the jury has a really difficult job to select the winners. The semifinalists will remain anonymous
until the winners are announced. The jury panel, chaired by NYC Planning Commissioner Amanda Burden 
will meet in a closed session on July 14, 2011 at the AIA New York Chapter: Center for Architecture. The
winners are going to be announced on July 28, 2011.

The finalists will be featured on, and our media sponsors. The One Prize Exhibition
and award Ceremony will take place in the fall of 2011.

Congratulations to all of our semifinalists!
