LA CES approved?: No

Location(s): International


The Epidemic Urbanism Initiative (EUI) is pleased to announce a forthcoming design competition, “Designing for Health and Equity: Supporting Vulnerable Communities in the Post-Pandemic Age,” with submissions due September 6, 2021. We write to you in the hope of sharing this call with students, faculty, and colleagues at your school.

The goal of this design competition is to provide a setting for collaboration between students, teachers, designers, thinkers, architects, artists, and practitioners from a range of disciplines and fields in order to create and discuss conceptual design ideas that explicitly promote healthy places for vulnerable communities.

This design competition will seek submissions in four categories: senior housing, community clinics, neighborhood schools, and public parks. Each design category will be reviewed by three jurors consisting of faculty and professionals from various countries and disciplines.

In the spirit of this collaborative endeavor, teams should consist of at least two people, with a minimum of one student or recent graduate and one faculty member or practitioner/professional. We encourage international and interdisciplinary collaborations. Students, faculty, and professionals from medical fields, urban design and planning, landscape design, medicine, social work, public health, and art are especially encouraged to collaborate. Teams can include participants from multiple universities.
