$15,000 for winner of Surrey’s PARKit Design Challenge

SURREY – Have a vision for a popup park?


The City of Surrey invites submissions for its annual PARKit Design Challenge, a competition for the design and installation of a summertime pop-up park in Surrey City Centre.


Individuals and groups are invited to submit "their unique ideas for a creative, sustainable, outdoor public space capable of incorporating two ‘duelling’ street pianos," the city says.


The winner will receive $15,000 to fabricate and install their design. Honorariums will be awarded to teams for second ($500) and third place ($250).


Challenge entries for 2015 are due May 1, with the winner announced on May 16. The site is expected to be installed by June 22 and will remain open all summer, near Surrey Central SkyTrain station. Full details are posted online at Surrey.ca/parkit.
