A competition open to final-year bachelor’s and all master’s degree students of architecture, landscape architecture, urban design and planning, from degree-granting educational institutions worldwide
The Schindler Global Award moves from São Paulo to Mumbai! The Schindler Global Award (SGA) will focus on the impact and implications of current and future mobility systems on urban development in one of the most globally significant cities - Mumbai.
The SGA is a one-of-a-kind urban design competition that encourages students to put their skills to the test. As the second largest city in the world, Mumbai presents many challenges, offering participating students the chance to engage with spatial, social and strategic topics. Mumbai requires integrated and sustainable urban systems that make the benefits of the city accessible to all its inhabitants. The megacity is also a benchmark for South Asia and beyond. How it approaches continuing growth and manages development processes is relevant at every scale, from neighborhood to national and global.
The competition will begin in mid-July 2018 with entries due at the end of January 2019. The SGA 2018/19 is open to final-year bachelor’s and all master’s degree students of architecture, landscape architecture, urban design and planning, from degree-granting educational institutions worldwide.
With over 100'000 US$ in prizes and a jury of international experts and practitioners, the Schindler Global Award gives the students of today a chance to contribute to the cities of tomorrow.
The Global Schindler Award is a partnership between the Schindler Group and the ETH Zurich, Professor Kees Christiaanse, Chair of Architecture and Urban Design and programme coordinator of the Future Cities Laboratory (FCL), along with the University of Liechtenstein, Professor Peter Staub, Chair of Architectural Design and Theory.
