Open to all ages and backgrounds, the competition challenges participants to design a temporary seasonal structure that creates new public space in the street. The winning entries will be constructed for public use during the 2017 Winnipeg Design Festival and used to generate awareness and discussion on the topic of “street as public space.” The deadline to register is August 18, 2017 and the submission deadline is August 23, 2017.
