Here Are the Five Winning Designs for a Post-Apocalyptic Central Park

It's hard to imagine improving upon Calvert Vaux and Frederick Law Olmstead's 1858 design for Central Park, but a recent design competition from landscape architecture journal LA+ asked participants to redesign a post-apocalyptic park from scratch. Check out the five winning designs in this short video from The Real Deal.

Eco-terrorists with an army of beetles and bees have destroyed Central Park, stripping Frederick Law Olmsted’s landmark of its flora and fauna. It is barren and must be rebuilt. All options are on the table. That was the prompt for landscape architecture journal LA+’s recent design competition, which inspired 382 entries from all over the world. Take a look at the five winning designs.
