Competition :: Dencity


Competition :: Dencity
Register by 3.15.15
Competition Website

Shelter is pleased to invite architects, planners, students, engineers, designers, thinkers, NGOs and organizations from all over the world to take part in the first annual Dencity Competition.

Rapid world growth and urbanization is not allowing cities to adapt and provide for their inhabitants. Towns are quickly growing into cities, and some of the densest places in the world are comprised of makeshift homes, otherwise referred to as slums. There are currently over 1 billion slum dwellers in the world. This number is expected to reach 2 billion by the year 2030.

The intent of this competition is twofold: to foster new ideas on how to better handle the growing density of unplanned cities and to spread awareness of this massive problem. Contestants should consider how design can empower communities and allow for a self sufficient future. There are no restrictions in regards to site, program, or size. Projects can be based on a specific location or a general concept.
