Dupont Underground has just launched their second International Design Competition: Re-Think Dupont Circle. One of the key public spaces in Pierre Charles L’Enfant’s famous urban plan for the nation's capital, Dupont Circle was not built out until the late 19th century and has not seen a significant redesign since the 1940’s when the automobile was ascendant. We feel it’s well past time to rethink Dupont Circle as a social, human-centered, public space. The competition covers the immediate urban area of Dupont Circle and it takes place at two scales (micro & macro) that must be interwoven through concept and design. Call for submissions and registration is now open through December 4th, 2020.
Check out our website to find out more details, register & submit. First prize is for $3500 with a final built product, second prize is $500 and lastly, 5 honorary mentions. This is open for all designers, architects, artists and students - internationally.
Jurors: Benedetta Tagliabue, Vesela Sretenovic, Lucrecia Laudi, Julian Hunt, Michael Marshall, Craig Cook, Nancy Hou and Josh De Sousa
