ONE PRIZE is an annual design and science award to promote green design in cities. ONE PRIZE 2011 turned its focus to New York and its waterways, re-imagining recreational space, public transportation, local industry, and native environment in the city and the Water as the Sixth Borough competition received submissions from 256 people from 18 countries and 5 continents.
Entrants drew inspiring proposals for the NYC BLUE NETWORK by expanding waterborne transportation and linking the five boroughs with a series of green transit hubs incorporating electric passenger ferries, water taxis, bike shares, electric car-share and electric shuttle buses as well as providing in-water recreation, water-oriented educational and cultural activities and climate resilience. The winning teams further submitted proposals for New York City to host the world's largest cleantech event, E3NYC and establish the city as the ultimate green capital on the world.
The competition was organized by Terreform ONE.
