International Contest for Engineers, Architects & Designers
HSE Graduate School of Urbanism is launching the first international contest for students and young professionals ‘Cities for a flying world’.
The aim of the competition is to promote discussion and research in order to generate insights and visions about the city to come, and to contribute to the development of flying technologies that will transform our environment in future.
The contest will take place from 29 May to 7 November 2017 and it is a part of the new master’s programme of the Graduate School of Urbanism ‘City and Technology: Prototyping Future Cities’. The results of the contest would be announced on 7 November 2017.
Participant proposals should consist of the following;
1) A brief description in English (max 350 words) outlining the key concepts of the proposal.
2) Graphic materials: site plans, floor plans, elevations, cross-sections, perspective drawings, photographs of physical or digital models, axonometric drawings of any scale, artistic sketches and collages
3) Video (optional): a 3-minute (maximum) video that presents the key concepts of the proposal.
Participants will be free to decide on the subject, scale and location of the project. Proposals could answer (but are not limited to) the following questions:
- What will cities look like when citizens have flying vehicles?
- How will buildings change if the roof or the window becomes a new entrance? Can buildings be built from top down?
- What will public transport using flying technology be like?
- How will deliveries by drone affect city communications?
