The contest seeks ‘a raft of architectural ideas to redefine the city’s waterfront’ and is to be judged by a panel including Daniel Libeskind.
Open to students and design professionals in teams or as individuals, the competition aims ‘to throw out preconceived notions of what [Detroit] is or what it should be.’
The competition site covers the city’s Cobo Hall and Renaissance Center and between Jefferson Avenue and the Detroit River including Hart Plaza.
A £5,400 prize fund is available with the winner taking home a £3,000 share and a trip to Detroit.
