Recently, City of Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado declared March as Miami Bike Month. And why shouldn’t it? Did you see the latest gathering this past Friday for Critical Mass? Hundreds of people, including celebrity cyclists and NBA megastars Dwyane Wade and Lebron James, were in attendance for a 13 mile trek around Miami. Cycling has become the latest “thing” in Miami. However, it could be more than just a monthly ride. Why not see cycling as a serious solution to the traffic congestion problems in and out of the city? Cities like Amsterdam and Chicago seem to think of it as a real solution. It doesn’t have to just be about bikes either, car sharing has become a major business as well and could also assist with making our streets safer. What if there was a place in Miami, built infrastructure that helped promote these solutions? Well there could be…..that’s where DawnTown needs your help.
We are officially launching our new architecture ideas competition for 2014, called Alternative Mobilities. The competition is open to professionals and students of architecture and other design fields to come up with a new type of transportation hub. One that acts as a generator for new ways to move around downtown in a more sustainable fashion.
Included here is our competition brief:
Alternative Mobilities Competition Brief – FINAL
This time we around we are instituting a registration fee. Why you ask? Many of you have alerted us that printing, mounting on foam core, and shipping your competition boards have cost you $100 to $150! Instead, we’ve decided to reduce the amount of printed material by asking you only submit your projects digitally. The fee allows us to do the printing for you. It’s all explained in the brief above.
Currently, the registration fees are as follows:
EARLY BIRD………$25.00 US (Register before March 27th)
REGULAR REGISTRATION……….$40.00 US (After March 27th)
Act soon and take advantage of our early bird registration. In order to do so visit our Eventbrite page: https://dawntownmiami.eventbrite.com
