FUTURARC PRIZE 2019 INVITES YOU TO IMAGINE HYPER-DENSE CITIES 

OPEN TO PROFESSIONALS & STUDENTS!

The Asian city grows denser by the day.

The FuturArc Prize 2019 asks you to investigate what it means to live in a hyper-dense city in Asia, one with no less than 100,000 people per square kilometre.

How can this be done? What is the right mix of activities and programmes? How does a new neighbourhood fit into the urban system-of-systems that already exists? What new systems does it bring into the picture? What does hyper-density look like? How does it feel to our senses?

THE TASK

Select a site within a city in Asia that is approximately 1km2 in size.

Redesign this to accommodate no less than 100,000 people, who must live and/or work here.

The total built-up area within this site should not be less than 2.5 million m2.

The redesigned neighbourhood must do the following:
1. Produce energy, water and food
2. Offer inclusive and accessible public space to all groups in the community
3. Offer space to non-human species and perform ecosystem services
4. Engage the wider city in positive and generous ways
