  • Comment

The 2014 Schindler Award for students – featuring a £90,000 prize fund – has opened for entries

Open to undergraduates and masters students, the anonymous contest seeks ideas to boost accessibility and mobility within new developments in Shenzhen, China.

The competition is backed by escalators and elevators manufacturer Schindler Group.

According to the brief: ‘The task of the competition is to create an urban design-based response to this specific brief about mobility related to Shenzhen, China and its local and regional relationships in the Pearl River Delta.

‘Students are asked to address the social, economic and environmental challenges presented by globalization and urbanization. Analytical design proposals should use mobility as both a catalyst and conduit for urban change.’

The brief continued: ‘The goal of the Global Schindler Award is to create an open forum for new thinking about the challenges and possibilities of a global, urban shared future, using mobility systems for greater inclusion, connection and accessibility for all.’

The deadline for registration is 15 November.
