Opportunity Space is an international design-build competition challenging multidisciplinary teams to propose a temporary, mobile structure that will support economic opportunity and social inclusion in Malmö, Sweden.
The winning team will receive a $10,000 prize, a $5,000 travel stipend, and up to $25,000 to cover the costs of implementing their proposal, including costs for materials and insurance.
Opportunity Space calls for multidisciplinary teams to bring design thinking to bear on both the built environment and social programs in order to achieve the following:
Imagine new ways for people to use or develop their skills and experience to build social capital, share resources, or earn income.
Create a mobile physical structure that makes education, social inclusion and job assistance resources more visible and accessible to job seekers and the general public.
Establish a striking and inviting amenity in the city that is open to everyone, and brings diverse groups of people together.
Teams are encouraged to pre-register their interest by 11:59 PM ET on Monday, November 7. Project updates and any answers to questions submitted about the request will be emailed to team leaders who have pre-registered.
The deadline for proposal submission is 11:59 PM ET on Friday, November 18, 2016.
