The CBDX: CITIES FOR ALL International Design Ideas Competition asks entrants to:
- Choose a non-fictional site on Earth—this could be an entire city itself, a neighborhood, a block, a building, a street, an alley, a bus stop;
- Choose a non-fictional human client(s) that has been underrepresented, undervalued and/or under-addressed in prevailing/dominant design discourse; and,
- Design a place, structure, thing, system, process, or relationship that increases the inclusion, belonging and equity of your client within the context of your site—while keeping in mind the twin challenges of the pandemic and climate change as opportunities for your design to unfold.
