Sustainable Design Competition Heats up in Dallas

Share this on:

The City of Dallas and Urban Re:Vision, in partnership with Central Dallas CDC and BC Workshop, are seeking a winning sustainable design that will transform a 2 1/2 acre city block in Dallas, Texas.  The Re:Vision DALLAS competition is calling all students, architects, engineers, city planners, designers, and visionaries to create an eco-friendly concept that could serve as an inspirational model for cities everywhere.

Entries will be judged upon the following criteria:  sustainability & reality of intent; affordability & constructability; innovation & originality; and sustainable use of energy, transportation, commerce, community, and construction.  Designs should integrate residential, retail, commercial, light industrial, a health & wellness space, an educational area, and preferred parking for a car sharing service.

Not only will the top three winning entries receive $25,000 each, but even the honorable mentions will receive 1,000!  Winners will also receive a consultation with the non-profit organization leading the development, Central Dallas CDC, and may possibly be selected to contribute the final design for this multi-million dollar project.

The panel of judges consists of the worlds top architects and visionaries:  Cameron Sinclair, Eric Corey Freed, Peter Head, Pliny Fisk and Sergio Palleroni.

The registration deadline is April 15, and the entry deadline is May 8, 2009.
