Between 1999 and 2002 the National Endowment
for the Arts’s New Public Works program sponsored
design competitions in cities across the United
States. The forward-thinking designs that emerged
have influenced the physical form of major public
works projects nationwide. New Public Works presents
a history of the program, along with interviews with
participants. Special attention is paid to the key
role played by private, municipal, and other public
funding sources. Case studies of three built projects
by Allied Works Architecture, Koning Eizenberg, and
Weiss/Manfredi Architecture describe the path of
each from competition through construction.
