Cities all over the world are in dire need of new ways to house a rapidly growing urban population. The City Above the City international wood design competition invites architects and students from all over the world to solve the challenges of urbanisation in both sustainable and humane ways.
The world’s increasing urbanisation is one of the most significant issues facing humanity today. By 2050, two-thirds of the world’s population will live in cities. Consequently, urban growth is fast outpacing the ability to build affordable and sustainable living space.
The competition will be judged by an international jury with extensive in-depth expertise in wood structure architecture and sustainable design.
