Design Challenge:

INTERSECT: What Happens When Transportation Corridors and Cities Collide? This international competition challenges university-level students in all disciplines to focus on a real-world urban design problem in the spirit of the competition’s namesake, Edmund N. Bacon, who was head of Philadelphia’s City Planning Commission from 1949-1970. This year’s competition challenges entrants to consider how transit corridors could or should intersect with the urban fabric of cities, using the specific example of Philadelphia’s I-95 corridor on the eastern edge of its Center City.
