The FIVE Design Challenge is an annual five-week-long ideas competition calling on local & international thinkers from any discipline to generate creative ideas for solving real challenges facing mid-size US cities. Cincinnati, Ohio is used as a case study for exploring uses for the underutilized urban spaces that every city has.
How does a five week competition work?
The FIVE brief & website contain contextual information and give a background for the challenge. As of March 22, five site options are available to view and choose from, the jury has been revealed, and a “prompt” has been provided to spark ideas.
As a five-week-long exercise for creative minds from all industries, submissions should be kept loose. Drawings should be less concerned with accurate context documentation and more on thought provoking concepts.
Entries are due by noon, April 26. http://www.
