Description
What if everything we knew and believed about design needed to change?
What if we need to change along with it?
It’s a provocative idea, but one Re:Vision has been delving into for the past two years. Our series of competitions have searched for ideas and plans that can redefine urban space in a restorative way. We have focused on the city block because it is a microcosm of systems and relationships, and requires an integration and imagination that transcends beyond a single building.
The challenges—and opportunities—on this scale are incredible.
And we’re looking for visionary thinking to take them on.
