Description
The 2017 Schindler Global Award (SGA) student urban design competition has begun. Starting from June 16, 2016, registration is open for students to put their design skills to the test on an international scale. Students in their final Bachelor degree year and Masters degree students of architecture, landscape architecture, urban design and planning are invited to join one of the most prominent preprofessional urban design competitions in the world which is organized for the 7th time.
Participation in the SGA asks students for designs that address the complex conditions and substantial challenges of contemporary urbanization. The 2017 competition site is in the center of São Paulo, Brazil, and tackles the planned relocation of a wholesale marketplace. The brief asks students to use mobility as a catalyst for change, from the design of public spaces and infrastructure to the role of economic and social forces. Questions about the integration of urban elements and populations are the focus of this holistic ideas competition.
