The shortlist for AECOM’s Urban SOS: Frontiers open ideas student competition has been announced. This years competition was seeking integrated design, planning, environmental restoration and engineering responses that address border, gateway and edge/fringe conditions in cities worldwide. Proposals had to address urban sites currently facing chronic liveability challenges that are largely the result of a city’s location on a physical, political, cultural or economic border. Proposals should be implementable.
The American Institute of Architects Detroit’s Urban Priorities Committee (AIA-UPC) is conducting a design competition to redesign the riverfront of Detroit. The competition will focus on the area between Cobo Hall and the Renaissance Center and between Jefferson Avenue and the Detroit River. This section of Riverfront which includes Hart Plaza is at the heart of the city. The major streets from the radial street plan created by Augustus Woodward (based on L’Enfant’s layout of Washington D.C.) intersect just north of this site. The program is direct and purposefully vague with the intention of generating creative solutions. Design solutions can be approached from an architectural, urban planning or artistic perspective.
