SOCIAL SUSTAINABILITY IS AT THE FOREFRONT THIS YEAR
At the Design the Sustainable Future Competition, which encourages future architects and engineers to think about and develop projects on the concept of ‘sustainability’, the participants are expected to come up with projects for mixed-use urban structures with a primary focus on social life, allowing for an efficient use of urban land and natural resources. Set out with the “Future Starts Here” slogan, the Design the Sustainable Future Competition draws a lot of attention to its special categories this year. This year, students’ projects will be assessed and awarded in the categories of “urban development and utilization”, “innovative idea and detailed solution”, “forward production and waste management”, “graphic design” and “social sustainability”.
