Visitors to New York City’s new Battery Green park may end up sitting on chairs created by one of three CSULB design majors—Ian Chambers, Shelby Connich and Imaan Naeem—whose designs are among 50 semifinalists in New York City’s Battery Conservancy Americas Design Competition “Draw Up a Chair.”

The three went up against more than 1,500 professional and student entries from nine nations in vying to become finalists who will be announced in November. Then, a full-scale prototype of each finalist’s design will be exhibited for public voting, with the ultimate winner receiving a grand prize of $10,000 and seeing approximately 300 of his or her chairs installed in the park.
