The Landscape Urbanism 3 Day Design Challenge invites teams to design and construct a site in response to a brief in just three days.
The challenge aims to bring together creative minds both nationally and internationally to compete in an action-packed, hands-on, game-plan competition that responds to this year’s State of Design Festival theme, ‘Design That Moves’.
The competition embraces the constant change of the urban environment. Teams will design temporary urban landscapes with a limited life space, injecting the urban environment with playfulness, imagining possible futures that are experiential and adaptive.
Melbourne’s Docklands will become the workshop, the camp, the dining room and the party venue for the teams for three entire days. Winning teams will be awarded with prize money and the pleasure of having a realised project in Melbourne’s public realm.
A symposium will be held at BMW Edge on Tuesday 26 July. The opening ceremony will take place on Wednesday 27 July at Docklands, and winners will be announced on Saturday 30 July.
The project is organised by OUTR (Office of Urban Transformation Research), a not-for-profit group that exists within the School of Architecture and Design at RMIT University, Melbourne.
*Event runs 28-31 July 2011*
