Design Challenge:

This competition provides an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students from schools of architecture around the world to submit their solutions for short, medium and long-term interventions around the dynamic and complex Warwick Junction site in Durban, South Africa. The work of shortlisted student teams will be exhibited, and the competition winners announced, at the UIA 2014 Durban Congress in August 2014. Outside of the cash value of the prizes, the prestige of winning this competition, which forms part of the UIA International Congress of Architecture, cannot be overstated.
