Which city is the most fun? London, NYC, Buenos Aires, Barcelona, Bangkok?

We don’t know either... that’s why we are asking you, the citizens of cities to make your city more fun!

Building Trust international have just announced a new international design competition, which seeks to find exciting design proposals to transform neglected parts of cities into interactive landscapes, encouraging public engagement, community involvement and sustainable adaptive reuse. The competition challenges professional and student architects, designers, engineers and artists to provide a design solution which advocates creativity and promotes outside activity, increasing socialisation.

Contestants should site their proposals in an abandoned or forgotten urban site and develop PLAYscapes that create opportunity for interaction and play for citizens of all ages. Building Trust international will work alongside competition partners, local government and community groups to seek funding and planning for the winning design.

The competition brief can be downloaded from below:
