Event time is displayed in your time zone.

Event Description

The pandemic has put pressure on the form of the city – exposing racial and class inequities that have exacerbated the uneven effects of the virus – while at the same time offering unique opportunities to break with the past and imagine our world anew. Students will explore a theme related to the urban landscape of the contemporary city and to devise a speculative alternative model for an imagined future city.

First place prize will be $500, followed by $350 for second place and $250 for third place.

Faculty Facilitators
