How do we design for impact? In a world bustling with innovation, we often overlook the potential within our own communities. This competition is a chance to harness your community’s spirit and design something with local value. Your challenge is to transform and enhance a local public space that is overlooked or poorly maintained. This transformation should be beautiful and add value to the lives of those who encounter it. We encourage you to foster social wellbeing and enhance people’s lives through your design.
Some examples might be: turning an alleyway into space for public art, rejuvenating a forgotten corner of a park, or finding new uses for underutilized parking spaces; the possibilities are endless.
As part of your competition entry, you must gather feedback from the community who will use the space. This feedback is core to designing something that is not only beautiful but also functional for those who interact with it everyday.
