About

Architecture competition titled Dencity Competition 2017 is a 3rd annual competition organized recently by Shelter Global pleased to invite architects, planners, students, engineers, designers, thinkers, NGOs and organizations from all over the world to take part.

The world’s population is rapidly growing and places all over the world are having to adapt with an unprecedented increase in urbanization. Towns are quickly growing into cities, and some of the densest places in the world are comprised of makeshift homes, otherwise referred to as slums. Right now, well over 1 billion people around the world live in slums. This number is rapidly growing and it is expected to reach 2 billion by the year 2030.

Design has always played a tremendous role in generating new ideas for the future. Now, more than ever, we need to turn our focus to cities and play a central role in the development of substandard neighborhoods.
Slums effect much more than just housing; they affect almost all living conditions and communities as a whole.

The intent of this architectural competition is to foster new conceptual ideas about how to better handle the growing density of unplanned cities.
Contestants should consider how design can empower communities and allow for a self-sufficient future.

For this years competition, the focus will be on improving living conditions in urban settings. There are no restrictions in regards to site, program, or size. Projects can be based on a specific urban location or a general concept. The object is to limit constraints and give participants the freedom to think in the most creative way possible. Submissions do not need to be created exclusively for the Dencity Competition, but should not have been submitted or published elsewhere.

Registration Fee for this competition is $55/project. Standard registration closes 13 March 2017.

Late registration goes until 24 April 2017 at midnight and is $80.

Eligibility

This competition is open to all architects, planners, students, engineers, designers, thinkers, NGOs and organizations from all over the world.

Prize

Dencity Competition 2017 will award the three best ideas with a total prize fund of more than $5,000, of which $3,000 are reserved for the best entry.
