G8WAYS to Chinatown Competition

Gateways to Chinatown is an initiative to plan, design and construct a symbolic and functional landmark at the nexus of Manhattan’s Chinatown and the southern entrance to Little Italy’s historic Mulberry and Mott Streets. The project will provide a new marker for Chinatown, Little Italy, and the surrounding neighborhoods in Lower Manhattan to engender pride of place, foster connectivity and cultural and social identity, and stimulate economic development. Our scheme is an iconic marker called G8WAYS to Chinatown, featuring an inner and outer touchscreen ring for information and cultural exchange, along with seating and additional bench areas.
