PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) — A competition is taking place to help determine what happens to the dilapidated Pontiac Silverdome.
Triple Investment Group announced the Silverdome International Design Competition, which is billed as an effort that will shape the future of the City of Pontiac. The deadline is April 12. Prizes are $3,000 for first place, $1000 for second place and $500 for third place.
Submissions about the Silverdome and its surrounding property are being sought from architects, planners, students, engineers, designers and artists.
The Detroit Lions moved from the Silverdome to Ford Field in Detroit in 2002.
Triple Investment bought the Silverdome in 2009 for $583,000. Many of its contents were sold at auction last year. Its roof has collapsed and its condition has prompted criticism from area residents.
