PARKit Design Challenge

The City of Surrey invites submissions in its PARKit Design Challenge, a competition for the design and installation of a summertime pop-up park in Surrey City Centre. This initiative offers a great opportunity for a hands-on design and construction project. Individuals and groups are invited to submit their ideas for a creative sustainable outdoor public space capable of supporting mobile food vendors. The PARKit site, located adjacent to Surrey Central SkyTrain Station in the North Surrey Recreation Centre parking lot, has become an important pedestrian hub, linking SFU Surrey and Central City Mall with the skyTrain station and recreation centre. The selected design team/individual will receive up to $12,000 to fabricate and install the design. Honorariums will be also awarded to second- and third-place entries. Submissions are due by Friday, May 17, with the selections announced on May 24.  The chosen project is expected to be installed by mid-July, and will remain open through August.
