Hillhurst United Church (HUC) in Calgary, Canada invites designers to develop an exceptional and inspiring concept for a new space to promote social actualization.

The concept of social actualization reflects a move from a focus on personal development toward the development of the collective. It suggests a process of sharing and co-learning where the results promote a community of people to reach its full potential. What would a space look like that fosters a process of social actualization?

Hillhurst United Church (HUC) is a flourishing inner-city community. It embraces the potential and the challenges of its community through its core values: spirituality, social justice and radical hospitality.

Designers are asked to articulate a highly creative solution through a new form and program for a space (adjacent to the existing church) with the aspiration to be an inviting community hub for social innovation and spiritual growth. The idea is to engage and channel the energy of the congregation and citizens in the neighbourhood toward future-focused ideas and be a dynamic home base for HUC’s flourishing community. We envision a space where individuals of different beliefs who share our values can collaborate and innovate; an incubator for ideas.
