Dallas’ downtown and Trinity River are experiencing rebirth and rejuvenation, lifting the city’s quality of life and sense of place. However, as it stands, there isn’t an inviting way to get from the downtown area to the planned Trinity River Corridor Park. The Connected City Design Challenge is seeking a bold, new design solution that will connect these two areas in a way that can overcome the physical, psychological, and economic divide that exists today. Dallas is poised to realize a truly connected and livable future, and it wants your help getting there. Do you think you have an idea that can transform this area? Submit it today. Up to $60,000 will be awarded to the winning team, and efforts will be made to help bring their idea to life! The deadline to enter is September 13, 2013.

In order to secure the most capable design talent and facilitate a variety of solutions, The Connected City Design Challenge will be structured as a competitive process consisting of two idea streams: a professional stream and an open stream. From the Professional Stream, the jury will select three design teams through a competitive request for qualifications process. The selected design teams will be awarded $50,000 to bring their expertise and ideas to the challenge and up to $10,000 covering travel to Dallas. The Open Stream invites professionals, non-professionals, and students to submit design proposals. By a combination of popular vote and jury selection, four finalists will receive $5,000 each and participate in the public exhibit and activities. Public events will include a symposium and lecture series by all three professional teams and panel discussions including the open stream finalists.
