"For their third annual competition, Gowanus by Design organized Axis Civitas to explore the potential development of the Gowanus neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York, and to address the lack of a sustainable urban strategy that would restore and preserve the area.

The two-component competition required entrants to first map out and analyze the current conditions of the area in a Gowanus Atlas, which would be used as a planning tool and resource for future reference. Then, they used that analysis to design a supporting Urban Field Station that the public can access, which would facilitate grassroots collaboration in the local community."
