Início em 16/07/2017 até 12/08/2017
Presented by AECOM and Van Alen Institute, with 100 Resilient Cities — Pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation, hOUR City is this year’s Urban SOS™ student ideas competition. We’re asking students to propose new solutions to tackle housing, transportation, or economic development challenges and to re-imagine what a future “hour city” boundary can be.
Students are encouraged to propose policy strategies, business models, and other solutions to address their chosen challenge, but these proposals must be accompanied by a physical intervention at a specific site in a city within the 100 Resilient Cities network. Students must form a multidisciplinary team of two to five members to enter, and include students from two disciplines at a minimum. Entrants must be enrolled in a certified program during the 2017-2018 academic year to participate.
Four juries comprised of industry leaders in Hong Kong, London, New York and Sydney will review submissions and select finalists to advance to a final presentation in Los Angeles in January 2018. A total of US$15,000 in prize money will be distributed among the finalist teams, and the winning team will receive up to US$25,000 of in-kind support from AECOM to implement a pilot of their proposal.
Competition deadline: 11:59pm EDT, August 13, 2017
