Type: Competitions / Awards

LA CES approved?: No

Location(s): US

Description: 55th International Making Cities Livable Conference
May 14-18, 2018, The Shaw Center, Ottawa, Canada

Join us in Ottawa to share your achievements and learn from others how we can best promote healthy, sustainable, equitable 10-minute neighborhoods. We shall discuss the best neighborhood models for encouraging walking, biking and public transit, high-density human scale mixed use, places to foster daily social life and community, opportunities for daily contact with nature, and equitable neighborhood planning.

DESIGN AWARDS COMPETITION:

Submitted projects do not have to be complete plans for a new urban neighborhood.
Projects might focus, for example, on the transformation of a mall into a mixed-use neighborhood center or a plan to restructure an existing neighborhood into a “complete” neighborhood through infill. Projects might focus on one element that is needed to bring about a healthy neighborhood, such as walkable, bikeable streets, or a neighborhood park, or they may focus on a project that creates a community gathering place, etc.

In all projects, the jury will be looking for evidence that the project enhances its context, and contributes to community, health, sustainability, and equity at the neighborhood level.
