FlyNY is New York City’s annual international kite design competition co-hosted by the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation and the New York City Affiliate of Architecture for Humanity. The event aspires to inspire design novices and professionals alike through the challenge of designing and flying a kite. Join us in celebration of New York City and its Parks as a place of culture, community, and play with a fun day of kite making and flying activities. To contribute, simply upload your original design ideas on Architizer.com by August 10th and make your way to Pier I at 70th Street in Riverside Park South on August 21st to showcase your finished product. A special pre-launch event will take place Friday, August 20th where 40 kite designs will be on display for a jury panel, which includes Craig Dykers of Snøhetta, Cameron Sinclair and Kate Stohr, co-founders of Architecture for Humanity and BurdaStyle’s own co-founder Nora Abousteit.
We’re excited to be part of such a creative event, and can’t wait to see the innovative designs flying high at the Pier. For more information and submission requirements visit FlyNY on Architizer’s Project page.
