This month, Gowanus By Design, a community-based urban design advocacy that is proposing new strategies for the development of the Gowanus Canal, is hosting an exhibit to feature the winning entries from Water_Works , their second annual design and planning competition. The opening will be held at the Old American Can Factory.

According to Gowanus By Design, "There were over 250 entries submitted from around the world and the jury was tasked to select nine winners in the areas of architectural design, community programming, and urban ecology. The award-winners along with other selected entries will be exhibited at the gallery.
The intent of the competition was to provide a new community resource that will occupy the site of the Douglas Degraw pool with a Combined Sewer Overflow [CSO] retention facility."  

It's bound to be very interesting, so don't miss it.
