Landscape Architects are Invited!

USDOT | Every Place Counts Design Challenge

The U.S. Department of Transportation is inviting regional and national urban designers, architects, landscape architects, engineers, and planners to participate as technical experts in the Every Place Counts Design Challenge!


The Every Place Counts Design Challenge aims to raise awareness and identify innovative community design solutions that bridge the infrastructure divide and reconnect people to opportunity. USDOT will host four community visioning sessions in July.

July 7-8 | Spokane, WA
July 14-15 | Philadelphia, PA
July 11-12 | Nashville, TN
July 18-19 | Minneapolis, MN

The Challenge represents the department’s latest effort to transform our transportation network into a system that reflects and incorporates the input of the people and communities they impact.


National and regional practitioners are invited to offer their knowledge and expertise to help the selected communities create forward-thinking, cutting edge solutions to infrastructure problems caused by past decisions that limited access and isolated communities from opportunity.

Volunteers will provide guidance to Every Place Counts Design Challenge session participants and technical expertise to derive best practices, identify innovative solutions and practical alternatives to addressing local infrastructure challenges.
