LA+ ICONOCLAST posits that Central Park has been destroyed by eco-terrorists protesting the loss of world forests. This competition challenges designers to reimagine Central Park, starting, as Olmsted and Calvert Vaux did, from scratch. LA+ invites submissions from architects, landscape architects, planners, artists, and designers. No professional qualifications are required to enter.
Five winners will share US $20,000 and feature publication in a special issue of LA+ Journal entitled LA+ ICONOCLAST. Ten honorable mentions receive a certificate and publication. Winners and select entries will be published and exhibited.
LA+ ICONOCLAST will be judged by an eminent, interdisciplinary jury:
Lola Sheppard – architect and co-founder, Lateral Office
Geoff Manaugh – author, BLDGBLOG and “A Burglar’s Guide to the City”

Charles Waldheim – Director of the Office for Urbanization, Harvard GSD
Beatrice Galilee – Curator of Architecture + Design, Metropolitan Museum Art
