“Urban Transformations: Designing the Symbiotic City” is the theme for the 2014 Symbiotic Cities International Design Ideas Competition. The competition is looking for planners, urban designers, architects, landscape architects, engineers, or ecologists, to provide important insights with the world about how to transform our existing cities into more resilient, climate adaptive, regenerative, symbiotic cities.
Using some combination of diagrams, sketches, 2D and 3D drawings, and accompanied by an explanatory narrative, we would like you to explore and develop planning and design concepts, for transforming the city that you live in into a regenerative symbiotic city adapted to a climate-changing environment. Your design concepts should explore how you will address key environmental problems now associated with your city, and transform now ecologically destructive urban systems into regenerative, symbiotic systems.
Entries are due by September 21st, 2014. An international jury of planning and design experts will select the winning entry to be announced on October 21st, 2014.
