The Futures of Cities :: The IFHP Ranko Radovic Student Competition

Result

This year’s competition has been an outstanding success in terms of the record number of entries - 193 received - and the range, quality and ambition of the student submissions. This is a very positive reflection on the excellent promotion and organisation of the event carried out by the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture under Professor Peder Duelund Mortensen and his team. There were submissions from 35 countries and from most continents, and underlying the very comprehensive range of subjects addressed there was both a strong ‘sustainability’ theme and a refreshing innovatory approach.

Description
Where will you be in 2030? Where will the rest of the world be? The competition is a worldwide call for proposals for implementations securing the Futures of Cities on all levels and scales, from the globalized city, the buildings that constitute cities, to the individual housing unit, to the quality of the urban realm which binds the city together.

Is the future of cities on the urban fringe or at the city center?
Is it size or sense of place that matters?
What defines a city - people, places or public edifices?
What is on the academic agenda at your school?
Planning for megacities or micro-communities - what is your academic focus?
What does mobility mean to you? Social climbing or alternative traffic solutions?
What is your definition of innovative architecture?
What is your definition of urban life and what is your urban ideal?
How do you hope to outfit the city for the future?
