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 opened on July 16 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.
Mumbai is the Site for the next Schindler Global Award competition. The brief will be published on July 16, 2018.
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.
