The City of Newark, New Jersey — the largest city in the most densely populated state — is exploring design strategies for a series of permanent installations to mark points of arrival to the city, from its train stations and airports to local streets and highway off-ramps. The goal of marking these “gateways” is to strengthen the visual and spatial identity of the city, to question deeply held perceptions, to capitalize on its deep, dramatic, and ﬁercely proud history, and to better register in the built environment the energy, spirit, and steadfastness that is Newark.
The Gateway Design Initiative will explore possibilities for this project through soliciting contributions of design ideas from a broad range of artists and designers. Participants are encouraged to raise a wide range of issues and to propose design strategies that expand and amplify the discussion of the relationship between Newark’s identity and built environment. Teams are challenged to produce design schemes that provide compelling, inventive, spirited, and even extreme interpretations of the design challenge posed here. We invite a range of proposals from the feasible to the most experimental.
