About the Competition

The Four Corners Competition is classified as a non-commissioned architectural/urban design ideas competition. It is open to entrants from the U. S. and abroad. Entries will be juried in two fashions: by a traditional closed jury of expert professionals, followed by an open public exposition of all the entries at which attendees may vote for their choice. Cash awards will be given to the winners in each category. See the Awards section of the website for more information about the prizes.

The competition study area, delineated on figure “A” below, lies between the city’s vibrant central entertainment and retail spine – known as “Fifth Avenue South” – on the West, and a planned major retail, office and residential development on the East, currently known as Grand Central Station. This development is expected to be equally as vibrant as Fifth Avenue South. This competition has been mounted to discover exciting ways to link these two focal areas, joining them into a new and grander Naples downtown. The competition also seeks to discover attractive ways to link this new enhanced core area to several other adjacent attractive areas, as indicated on the context aerial map in the context section of this website.

The character of the designs submitted in this competition will be critically important. The City of Naples has long been recognized as one of the most attractive locations in Florida. Located on the Gulf of Mexico, Naples has attracted an upscale population of around 22,000 year-round residents and an additional 16,000 seasonal residents. The city also serves as the hub of a vast metropolitan community of around 250,000. Naples’ extraordinarily sophisticated, green ambiance is exemplified in the photos displayed in this website. Residents and civic leaders alike are determined to safeguard this character, and to see it enhanced within the competition study area.
