Co-organised by the Urban Planning & Design Institute of Shenzhen (UPDIS), the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC), the international agency ARQ and curated by Non Architecture, this competition, titled “Community 2050”, aims to gather reflections and design inputs for a more sustainable and equitable progress of cities.

The competition theme proposes to look at communities through the lenses of technology and innovation. What is ahead?

+ Five overall topics are considered central:

  • Environmental Sustainability

  • Safety and Resilience to Climate Change and Disasters

  • Ecology and Health

  • Urban Regeneration, Densification and Heritage Protection

  • Social Inclusiveness and Community thriving

These five topics can be conjugated into the two competition sites. The sites present common features but also radical differences.
