Designing for Life: Launch of International Design Competition to Climate-Proof our Neighbourhoods

GetImage
Groundwork London and Hammersmith & Fulham Council, in association with the National Housing Federation and the Landscape Institute, have launched the Design for Life Competition as part of their west London Urban Climate-Proofing project.

The competition invites ideas about how green infrastructure (GI) could be retrofitted in a neighbourhood to make it more resilient to climate change. Design ideas must be linked to a real space and must tackle climate challenges such as flooding, overheating and drought.

The winners will receive £1000 plus a day of expert advice on how the winning idea could be developed and implemented.

Submission deadline: 21st September 2015, 17:00 GMT
