Starting 16 June 2016, students of architecture, urban design and planning are invited to participate in the 2016/2017 edition of the Schindler Global Award (SGA) ideas competition.
The SGA 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.
With over 100,000 Euro in prizes, the Global Schindler Award will recognize one winning competition scheme along with runners up and grants.
The 2017 competition will focus on the impact and implications of current and future mobility systems in one of the most globally significant cities in Brazil, South America: São Paulo.
Participation in the competition gives students a platform for knowledge sharing, comparison and recognition. Through the use of the open competition format, common in professional design practice, students have the opportunity to gain career-oriented skills and contact with internationally renowned practitioners and experts.
The Schindler Global Award 2017 is held under the leadership of the Schindler Group, again in collaboration with the ETH Zurich, Chair of Architecture and Urban Design, Professor Kees Christiaanse.
