ULI Hines Student Urban Design Competition

Rm 1227
Art + Architecture Building

The Urban Land Institute has announced the annual Hines Urban Design Competition for 2013. Interdisciplinary student teams compete in an intense two-week period in late January for a top prize of $50,000 to solve a significant urban design problem in an American city. This is an opportunity to learn a great deal about tackling a real urban design and real estate development problem with teammates from a range of backgrounds. We encourage everyone to participate. For more details, see http://www.uli.org/programs/awards-competitions/hines-student-design-competition/.

The first job is to form teams, with each multi-disciplinary team having representatives from at least three degree programs. Possibilities include, for example, Architecture, Urban Planning, Urban Design, Business, Law, Kinesiology, Engineering, Public Policy, and Landscape Architecture. Team applications are due at ULI on December 9.

You will hear from students and faculty who have participated in the past. If you don’t have a team yet, it will be an opportunity to find team members.

  • November 19 (Tuesday), 6-7pm, room 1227, Art & Architecture Bldg., North Campus.

The winning team receives the grand prize of $50,000, and other teams in the finals receive $10,000 each. Teams from the University of Michigan have made it to the finals multiple times and won the grand prize once. All entrants strengthened their portfolios and resumes.
