Storefront for Community Design and mObstudiO at Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts invite teams of planners, architects, landscape architects, designers, artists or individuals to participate in a national design ideas competition to conceptually reimagine Monument Avenue in Richmond, Virginia.

The competition, called Monument Avenue: General Demotion/General Devotion, asks participants to reconsider Monument Avenue: its role as an historic urban boulevard, its viability as a 5.4 mile interurban connector, its presence in Richmond given the city’s emergence as a diverse and progressive city, its significance in the history of the United States and in the current debate about Confederate statues in public spaces.
