The Global Schindler Award is a new competition for students that will explore questions about universal mobility and access amidst rapid globalization and urbanization. In its inaugural year, a real site in Shenzhen – a booming commercial and industrial area adjacent to Hong Kong – has been chosen as the subject of the urban design proposals. Entrants are being asked to re-imagine the city as an inclusive urban environment and will be vying for portions of the $150,000 prize fund.

Students may compete as individuals or in teams, but must work under the supervision of a faculty member. Registration is open until November 15, 2014 and entries are due on January 31, 2015. The winners, which will be chosen by an esteemed panel of interdisciplinary jury members including landscape architect Kongjian Yu of Turenscape and architect Farshid Moussavi, will be announced in early 2015.
