Today, there’s new interest in living in the city, but also many challenges.  High housing costs and limited supply have caused gentrification and overcrowding.  Resource use still needs to be reduced for a truly sustainable ecosystem.

Do you have a radical yet practical design idea to make the place you live (or want to live) more sustainable, socially just, and perhaps also fun?  It could be a new type of zoning for tiny houses, a rooftop gadget, a mixed use space rented by the hour, or re-imagining transportation in an entire metropolitan area.  Ideas can be small, big, temporary, or permanent.   But they should be site specific – a building, a block, a town, maybe a vehicle, and also not pure fantasy – a key part of the judging criteria will be how economically and politically feasible your plan is.

Entries will be put to a public vote on Facebook, and also judged by an interdisciplinary team of young professionals, students, and activists.  Results will be published online and in a book.
