Thoughtfully Designed Bench Wins Design Challenge
The Street Seats design challenge invited participants to reimagine the public bench. Entries were submitted from around the world. There were 200+ entries from 24 countries on 6 continents and from 22 U.S. states. Among the participants were design firms, students, and individuals who answered the challenge. A high-caliber panel of jurors have announced the winning entries!
Designs of 15 semi-finalists will be fabricated and installed around the World Trade Center and Tom McCall Waterfront Park. Kyle and Alyssa Trulen’s team entry (A Quiet Place to Sit and Rest) was selected as the Grand Prize winner. Congratulations!
