SHIFTboston is challenging urban planners, architects, urban designers, designers and landscape architects -- professionals and students -- to explore and visualize destinations along the proposed South Coast Rail extension, which will connect Boston to Taunton, New Bedford, and Fall River, Massachusetts.

The planned extension of commuter rail lines from Boston's South Station to the Massachusetts South Coast has the capacity for broader re-conception and re-imagination of the region. Competitors might animate the rail system by adding to or enhancing the latent urban NETWORK . These NEW destinations could draw from the regional and local resources, industry and culture such as, universities, agriculture, arts, marine industry, historical institutions, tourism and recreation. FUN?

This international competition and event will foster the development of valuable concepts necessary for a new and vital urban network along the railway therefore becoming a true realization of the potential of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation's South Coast Rail Economic Development and Land Use Corridor Plan.

This competition is open to all individuals and teams of all sizes.

The winner will receive a 1000 US dollar cash prize and present his/her concept at the SHIFTboston
WHY STOP Forum at Faneuil Hall in Boston, MA on October 20th among select members of the jury,
government, community and business leaders, local developers and regional economic development
groups.
