iscrizione e consegna entro il 05.12.2011

The WSUD 2012 Committee in conjunction with Monash University's Centre for Water Sensitive Cities invite students to partner with members of the design profession to submit urban design proposals that clearly articulate water sensitive initiatives within the Maribyrnong Defence Site.

This competition seeks to explore how one can create water sensitive spaces with a sense of place. We will do this by learning, developing, and testing the informed, intuitive, and technical languages of design - worked through urban context, architectural typologies, scientific credibility and experiential relationships.

The competition is open to teams of up to five students each. In order to be eligible, all team members must be enrolled in a certified undergraduate, graduate or post-graduate program of study from between July and December 2011. The competition is geared towards those studying urban and regional planning, urban design, landscape architecture, architecture, engineering and related disciplines. We strongly encourage the development of interdisciplinary teams. Each student team must partner with one commercial or government organisation where they can access expert advice/mentoring during the development of the design.

A shortlist of ten teams will present their work - either in person or via video-link to the First Stage Judging Panel. From this presentation, four teams will be selected to further refine their work for final presentation - in person of via video-link on at a nominated time and date at the WSUD Conference 2012.
