Urbaninform Announces the Urbaninform Competition 2010

urbaninform Competition 2010: Architecture of Social Investment

Architecture and Urban Design Projects Shaping the Urban Future

The urbaninform Competition 2010 is calling for architecture and urban design projects, which engage in and cooperate with social entrepreneurship and green business. The projects should be realized or developed to the level of being implemented.

Are you an architect, an urban designer, a social entrepreneur, a government official, a foundation or simply an individual or group engaging in the sustainable future of our cities?

Does your project empower individuals and communities to become economically independent?
Does your project understand architecture as business opportunity?
Does your project allow the community to generate or maintain services,
infrastructure or education facilities?

If your project is a social investment, submit and win!
