The James River Green Building Council‘s 2010 Green Spaces Forum, showcasing the entries for this year’s competition, will be held at the Robinson Theater on May 27th:

Building off of last year’s Play Space challenge, this year’s entrants are asked to look at the remaining 34 +/- acres on the Greater Fulton Gas Works site and develop a plan or design for that land that provides space for living, working, recreation, agriculture or something entirely different and unexpected.

From the announcement:

This thoughtfully crafted community discussion will include a combination of regional community leaders, building industry professionals, city officials and contractors in attendance, as well as a moderated panel of four that will debate of the merits of competition entries, while allowing attendees to view all entries and participate in the debate.

This year’s panel will include Cynthia Newbille, Rachel Flynn, Sheila Sheppard and Robin Miller with Becky Clay Christensen moderating.

Sign up today to ensure your spot at the forum. Tickets are $15 for members and $20 for nonmembers. This event will take place from 5-8:00 pm. on May 27th. Light refreshments will be served. This event will take place at the Robinson Theater, 2903 Q Street Richmond, VA 23223.

Challenge:
Last year’s Play Space challenge asked entrants to develop a recreational green space solution on the 10 acre Fulton Gas Works parcel to be shared by the surrounding community. Entrants were asked to consider the existing on-site infrastructure, Richmond culture and climate and to develop a solution that not only conserves natural resources but feeds back into the grid.

Building off of last year’s Play Space challenge, this year’s entrants are asked to look at the remaining 34 +/- acres on the Greater Fulton Gas Works site and develop a plan or design for that land that provides space for living, working, recreation, agriculture or something entirely different and unexpected.
