Schindler Global Award - Competition 2018/19

The ranking of the winners was be announced on the 10th of May 2019 at the official award ceremony in Mumbai. Representatives from each nominated team will attend.

Prizes from 25,000 to 5,000 USD have been awarded. A companion publication featuring the winning projects is available.



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.
