SMART DOCK
Open International Design Competition for Building a Vibrant Center for Design, Science and Education at the
Brooklyn Navy Yard

Based in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Terreform ONE has announced the 5th annual ONE Prize Competition. Since 2010,
the annual competition has attracted thousands of participants from around the world.

This year’s ONE Prize proposes to design a collaborative teaching facility and public outreach center for socio-
ecological design within the Brooklyn Navy Yard, for ONE Lab, a new school for design and science.
The “Smart Dock” will include spaces for lectures, events, and design studios for approximately thirty graduate level
students. It will function both as a visual reference and spatial matrix for ONE Lab, and as a unique interdisciplinary
research laboratory for industrial design, synthetic biology, landscape ecology, art, architecture, and master planning.

ONE Prize is a platform on which creative pioneers can combine both theoretical and practical work that addresses
smart design and the redevelopment of industrial and waterfront sites in New York and other cities worldwide.

Good news!
The early registration period of the ONE Prize 2014 competition has been extended for another month.  
Until July, 31st, the entry fee will still be only $100.

So HURRY UP and sign on to develop your vision for ONE Lab, a brand new, independent design school at the heart of
the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

ONE Lab will be a new kind of learning space, nestled within an awesome new innovation facility. You can help give it
both physical and conceptual form. You can help give it life.
Imagine arriving by bike, bus or even boat, to a place for
thinking, creating, and making. You can attend lectures and
discussions in a space furnished with interactive equipment, sit with your professor in the lounge area, be hooked up
by live feed in the library. From the bar, where you will have thrilling discussions while tasting the latest food
experiment, to a display area created to showcase work of young innovators, ONE Lab will be organized around
collaborative work, interaction, and changing needs. The ONE Lab “Smart Dock” will enable you to have access to
state of the art facilities: 3D printers, laser cutters, laboratories, monitors, facilities for growing and preparing food,
spaces for events, etc.
ONE Lab will be located within the Brooklyn Navy Yard and be part of its renaissance and transformation into a green
manufacturing and high-technology complex. In this dynamic and rich environment, at the core of the DIY revolution,
ONE Lab will foster the meeting of different people, ideas, and know-how.

We welcome a range of proposals, from the most practical to the most visionary, so imagine how your ideal for a
design and science school for the future might be embodied in the ONE Lab “Smart Dock”.
So…
don’t waste time. Register this month.

Remember: The winner will receive $5000 and get a chance to see his/her proposition be developed for construction!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 4, 2014. ONE Prize competition 2014

The renovation of building 128 in the Brooklyn Navy Yard is an exciting moment for Brooklyn’s renaissance. A massive
industrial facility, with an enormous open space, natural light, and infrastructure for heavy industry will be transformed
into a center for innovation, with state-of-the art digital fabrication facilities, and a combination of tenant-occupied and
shared work spaces. Our goal for the ONE Lab “Smart Dock” is to give a relatively small amount of dedicated space
both flexibility and high symbolic value, to distribute a network of smaller “docks” in the shared areas, and to have the
possibility of holding temporary events and exhibitions.

While our actual resources are limited, and the space we end up renting will most likely be the area outlined in red on
our documents, we encourage you to think “big” at some level, to engage some of ONE Labs, social, environmental,
and technical goals. This competition is at heart a competition of ideas, not a narrowly defined architectural brief.

We have placed all the competition documentation online, and it is now available for anyone to see or download.
Questions and Answers will also be posted. We encourage students, professionals, and inventive individuals from
any field to register for the competition.
