Salt Lake City launches urban ideas contest
An international competition has been launched to redesign a key part of Salt Lake City in the US
Teams have until 23 March to register for the Sixty-nine Seventy competition to re-envision the circulation areas of two blocks in the Utah state capital
The competition is being run by the American Institute of Architects’ Utah Young Architects Forum, and the Downtown Alliance, in collaboration with other groups.
Its website says it hopes submitted entries will act as a catalyst for growth.
‘Salt Lake City boasts a stunning natural setting, numerous cultural amenities, a unique history, a vibrant retail core, and a thriving and diverse business community,’ says the website.
‘Currently, it lacks connection between many of these elements. The design competition seeks to harness ideas from around the world that will activate the spaces between with creativity deeply rooted in the city’s rich context.’
A £75,000 prize fund will be divided between the three leading entries.
Registration should be completed by 23 March
Submissions are due 20 April
Winners will be announced 4 June
