The task of the competition is to create an urban design-based response to a specific brief about mobility related to Shenzhen and its local and regional relationships in the Pearl River Delta. The interface of mobility networks with the built environment of the city and region must be considered in a global context. Students are asked to address the social, economic and environmental challenges presented by globalization and urbanization. Analytical design proposals should use mobility as both a catalyst and conduit for urban change. The goal of the Global Schindler Award is to create an open forum for new thinking about the challenges and possibilities of a global, urban shared future using mobility systems for greater inclusion, connection and accessibility for all.
