Have a seat, the Battery Conservancy has a challenge for you. Students and professionals throughout the Americas can submit a design for a "moveable outdoor seating element" for the new Battery Green. 300 of the winning chairs will be made, and the designer gets a cool $10,000. Submissions will be accepted through October 30th.
