What is the role public space will be playing ecologically, socially and economically in the next 100 years? Urban Intervention attempts to answer this question through a competition for designing a public space on a 9 acre site at the heart of Seattle Centre, a 74 acre urban park and campus in the USA. Design ideas are expected to keep in mind the city's culture of innovation and interaction through civic engagement and participation and use these as tools to explore the changing role of public spaces in the contemporary.
The key themes to be explored are:
-Design to Innovate
-Build an Ecologically Resilient City
-Renew the Cultural Campus
-Be a Change Agent
The competition is open to high level multidisciplinary entries from established or emerging design teams with at least one member who is a licensed design professional. Participation can result in not just prizes and recognition in an international arena, but also exhibitions, publications, honorable mentions, etc.
The competition is open internationally for participants from any country.
