Description
AECOM is seeking submissions for our third Urban SOS competition. The theme of this year’s competition is water. We are seeking integrated design, planning, environmental restoration and engineering proposals in any urban context that relates to or improves the relationship between water and urban development worldwide. Entrants must submit a creative urban design, landscape, architectural, environmental restoration or engineering project where water is planned responsibly and effectively. Proposals should be on urban sites currently adversely affected by water-based conditions or facing water challenges now or in the near-future. Proposals should be implementable in the short-term as we will be engaging a charity to help implement the proposed project.
