Schindler Global Award 2017

The Schindler Global Award is back – and it’s moving from Shenzhen to São Paulo! One of the most prominent student urban design competitions is open for entries again now. The Schindler Global Award 2017 is focused on the impact and implications of current and future mobility systems in one of the most globally significant cities in South America: São Paulo.

The Schindler Global Award 2017 (SGA) is an exciting opportunity for young designers to match their skills and imaginations against the challenge of shaping the cities of today and tomorrow. The competition will begin in June 2016 with registration, open until 16 December 2016. Entries are due on the 30th December 2016. Prizes will be awarded by a jury of international experts in mid-2017. The SGA 2017 is open to final-year bachelor’s and all master’s degree students of architecture, landscape architecture, urban design and planning, from degree-granting educational institutions worldwide.

The Schindler Global Award 2017 is held under the leadership of the Schindler Group, again in collaboration with the ETH Zurich, Chair of Architecture and Urban Design, Professor Kees Christiaanse.

The SGA is committed to presenting a diverse range of geographic, cultural and urban contexts to help prepare students for the increasingly globalized nature of design thinking and practice. Students will be encouraged to come up with designs that respond to fundamental questions about life in contemporary cities, from living conditions to environmental balance, and from infrastructure to public space.
