The International Council for Caring Communities (ICCC) has recently opened the 2014 International Student Design Competition – Integrated Communities: A Society for All Ages.
The Competition invites architecture students around the world to apply their creative talents in developing solutions, which integrate older persons into the fabric of the community and fully include them in all social, cultural, and productive activities.
Undergraduate and graduate students of architecture around the world are eligible to submit projects.
Three main prizes are available for the best projects. The first prize is $10,000, the second – $5,000 and the third – $2,500! Because the competition is open to individuals as well as groups of students two of each of the three main prizes will be announced. All project submissions will be recognized with a certificate acknowledging participation.
Finalists will be invited to present their projects at the UN Commission for Social Development, February 2014 at United Nations Headquarters. Exhibitions will follow in China and Brazil and other UN regional and world venues.
The Integrated Communities: A Society for All Ages international student design competition is organized in cooperation with the United Nations Programme for Human Settlements (UN-HABITAT) and United Nations Ageing Unit, Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), Fortune Global Holding, Ltd, and other partners.
