Queens Environmental Center Wins Design Award

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and Design Commission President Signe Nielsen honored 10 public works projects in the city's five boroughs July 7 with the 32nd Annual Awards for Excellence in Design.

The Alley Pond Environmental Center in Queens is among 10 public works projects honored July 7 by New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and Design Commission President Signe Nielsen, as they presented the city's 32nd Annual Awards for Excellence in Design. The city's Design Commission selects the projects for having exceptional design.

The 2014 award winners include a new Little League grandstand on Staten Island, a reconstructed playground in Sunset Park, a 17-foot diameter Peace Clock near the United Nations, and the redesigned environmental center at Alley Pond Park. "Whether it's a world-class monument or a new vital fixture of a neighborhood, we want design that inspires New Yorkers and gives us all pride in our city. We're fortunate to have the legacy of so many incredible public works from generations past. These 10 projects represent the best of what we are doing today to break new ground," said de Blasio.

"For more than 30 years, the commission has recognized leadership in design in the public realm. This year's winning projects represent exemplary additions to the cityscape and epitomize the best of what talented artists and designers can do in collaboration with the public sector," Nielsen said.
