Over 80 registrants participated in the 2013 COLDSCAPES Competition, with submissions received from 15 U.S. cities and 13 countries spanning a wide range of cold (and warm) weather climates.

The three winning entries and ten honorable mentions were selected by a jury comprised of leaders in a range of design fields, including architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning and public art. The projects selected for recognition reflect the diversity of the jurors’ backgrounds and the spectrum of potential insertion points for design to enhance the lives of winter city visitors and residents.

Our submission, GLOW, is featured as an Honorable Mention, and will be published in Urban Infill, Vol. 6, available from November 15, 2013.
