Description
To rethink the future of mid-size cities, and their role in the overlapping economic and environmental challenges that the 21st century brings, Mississippi State Universityʼs Jackson Community Design Center (JCDC) will host a design competition and symposium focused on the inherent challenges and immense potential for socioeconomic and environmental reconciliation by addressing barriers created by an urban divide.
FORMCities calls for design proposals to address the negative impacts of urban forms and transportation thoroughfares which have created visual, physical, and psychological, barriers that have sorted cities along the lines of race, income, and class.
For the purpose of FORMCities, a mid size city is any metropolitan statistical area with a population of a minimum of 100,000 and a maximum of 1,000,000 people in the city proper and the surrounding suburban municipalities. There will be both a student category and a professional category.
