The Global Schindler Award student competition is now welcoming proposals from students of architecture, landscape architecture, urban design and planning for new urban mobility concepts that respond to changes in the global urban fabric.
The task of the competition is to create an urban design-based response to a specific brief about mobility related to Shenzhen, China, and its local and regional relationships in the Pearl River Delta. The interface of mobility networks with the built environment of the city and region must be considered in a global context. Students are asked to address the social, economic and environmental challenges presented by globalization and urbanization.
With over 100,000 Euro in prizes, the Global Schindler Award will recognize one winning competition scheme along with runners up, and a research fellowship with financial and institutional support by ETH Zurich.
Registration closes on 15 November 2014 . For more information, visit www.schindleraward.com .
